Hosting FireFox add-ons on your own site

2006-02-10 12:22:38

As I just learned, if you want to host FireFox extensions on your own site,
you might have to add a mime type mapping to your apache config.

Here is the line I added:

application/x-xpinstall         xpi

If you don't have this, your apache might assume the file is plain text, and the user will just get a screen full of junk.
