Cannot install firefox plugins

Well I thought I was going crazy.

Today I installed foxmarks on my Windows OS, hours later I tried to install it under linux and it kept failing.

I was really losing my patients. I could not figure out why it wasnt working. I disabled all other plugins, closed all other tabs, everything I could think of.

revolutionary road online Finally after searching for too long I found this post on the ubuntuforums.

It shows lots of other people were having the same problem.

The solution is to add

64.50.236.214   releases.mozilla.org

to you /etc/hosts file.

It appears that mozilla are having some issues with either the DNS entry or the servers behind releases.mozilla.org

I just know that this change will cause problems in the future though.
