For others having this problem and awaiting a solution, a temporary workaround when trying to install add-ons is to open the "Download Now" button in a new tab (click with middle mouse button); for some reason, that works and allows the add-on to be installed.

Comment 3 Heiko Adams 2012-02-02 19:11:37 UTC
Problem seems to be solved with Firefox 10/Xulrunner 10

Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2012-02-06 11:18:34 UTC
Thanks, should be fixed now, FF10 is in rawhide/updates.
