How are you supposed to install the ElasticFox add-on on Firefox (4.0.1) on latest Ubuntu (11.04)? (ElasticFox is an extension for Amazon EC2 management.)

Going to Tools -> Add-ons and searching for it returns nothing. Top results for "install elasticfox firefox 4" search are strange links that just throw me back to browser's home page. Apparently people who had it installed before upgrading to Firefox 4 have got it working, but how about us who don't have it yet?

Thanks to our awesome George Edison I was able to modify that plugin to make it work with Firefox 4.0.1. Thanks again for pointing that out!

Here is the modified plugin.

Is there perhaps a way to install Firefox 3.x via Ubuntu package management (perhaps alongside 4.0)? – Jonik May 19 '11 at 18:16
