    The “Invalid file hash” problem is still present on July 21. Suggested work-arounds are too vague. Does anyone have a step by step procedure to install Any Color?

    I’m continually getting the following error message:

    Firefox could not install the file at

    because: Not a valid install package

    I’m using FF 3.0.1 on Vista Ultimate.

    Having the same issue on my Vista laptop and ended up using IE to download the XPI so I could install it. All FF would do is download a corrupted version.

    I installed anycolor extension but i want to change url bar and tabs shapes. I have attached 2 images showing the changes.

    Would appreciate if you can help me change the url bar and tabs from the black image to the white image with userChrome.css codes.

    If you can email me the codes please.

    Thank you.

    Sanjay: I’ll see what I can do in a future version. Meanwhile, you may find the Stylish extension useful as it allows you to try & apply arbitrary CSS without having to restart the browser.

    Sorry that this isn’t an appropriate place for this, but I couldn’t find anywhere better.
    I’m sure that this SHOULD work with stumbleupon, because I haven’t found any complaints that it doesn’t… but when I install it my stumbleupon toolbar disappears.

    How do I uninstall anycolor. I like it, but just dont want it anymore. Thanks.

      You can uninstall AnyColor the same way you uninstall any Firefox add-on. Go to the “Tools” menu, click “Add-ons”, find & select AnyColor and click the uninstall button.
