Firefox 1.0 Extensions Workaround

I found a workaround so that my installed extensions will work until updated versions are released. This should work with most of the preview release extensions. Type about:config where you would normally type an URL. Type extensions into the filter and look for app.extensions.version. Double-click on it and change the value from 1.0 to .10 (aka, the preview release number). To to Tools->Extensions and enable all of them. When you restart Firefox, everything should work. I've got about six extensions that all seem to work fine. This should at least tide you over until they are all updated.

FWIW, the extensions I'm using are: Single Window, Permit Cookies, BugMeNot, Statusbar Clock, and Toolbar Enhancements.
