Description of problem:
After updating firefox to v9.0 it's no longer possible to install addons from addons.mozilla.org. When opening the page of an addon the list of similar addons on the bottom of the page isn't loading and firefox error log shows 3 errors for that page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start firefox
2. navigate to i.e. https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/ghostery/?src=hp-dl-featured
3. try to install the addon
Installing addons is impossible and Firefox error log shows 3 errors:
1) Fehler: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80570016 (NS_ERROR_XPC_GS_RETURNED_FAILURE) [nsIJSCID.getService]" nsresult: "0x80570016 (NS_ERROR_XPC_GS_RETURNED_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: resource:///components/OpenWebapps.js :: OpenWebapps :: line 50" data: no]
2) Fehler: z.button is undefined
3) Fehler: $(".install").installButton is not a function
It should be possible to install addons from addons.mozilla.org

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.
Problem seems to be solved with Firefox 10/Xulrunner 10
Thanks, should be fixed now, FF10 is in rawhide/updates.
