Troubleshooting Firefox 4 and delicious bookmarks

If you used delicious bookmarks with FF 3.x and recently updated FF to the version 4.0, you’ll be negatively surprised, the delicious toolbar is not displayed anymore: the delicious bookmarks add-on isn’t yet officially compatible to FF 4.0.

The found solution (here in german: http://wordpress.kendaric.net/2011/03/17/delicious-plugin-im-firefox-4-nutzen/) described the steps to solve the problem:

  1. Start FF and navigate to “about:support
  2. Click “Open containing folder”
    image
  3. Navigate in the newly opened explorer window to subfolder “extensions\{2fa4ed95-0317-4c6a-a74c-5f3e3912c1f9}”:
    image
  4. Open install.rdf and find the line with “em:maxVersion”
    image
  5. Change the value to “4.0”
    image
  6. Save the file and restart FF.
  7. Enjoy!Smile

I've tried all this and it doesn't seem to do anything - am I missing something?

You may already upgraded your FF to 4.0.1 (it runs automatically), so ensure you changed the entry as

em:maxVersion="4.0.1"
