28 Dec 2011 UPDATE

This version is outdated and not available anymore.
See here for the latest version.

As a long time Aardwark user, now that Firefox 8 is out (and FF7 is at beta stage) I'm still missing an official version that works with it.

Well, the original Aardvark 3.0 works perfectly in FF4/5/6/7/8 but it can't be installed because its manifest (a file inside the addin that says FF which versions that addin is compatible with) reports FF 3.6.* as max version.
Editing this info is not so difficult, but some inexperienced users can't do it.

Here you are, you can download an already patched version Aardvark, working on Firefox 3.0 --> 8.0.
The only change I made, as said, is to allow it to be installed in Firefox versions to 8.0 (included) and nothing else.

NOTE: addon should install automatically when you click the link above.
If it doesn't, save the .xpi file to your computer (by right clicking) then drag&drop it to FF addons page. Or better:

  • Download the .xpi file to a local folder on your computer
  • Open Firefox, click on the top-left orange Firefox button, then choose add-ons
  • Click on the button next to the up-right search box (with a gear image)
  • Choose install addon from file and select the previously downloaded .xpi file


I'm a long-time Aardvark user, and I really appreciate your making it compatible with FF7. Thanks!

You're welcome ;)

This fix works perfectly! I have been waiting a long time for a solution to this problem.

Thank you so much!! It works great, and I am so glad someone fixed it so I could use it again. Perfect.

Thanks for this.

Thank you! It still works perfectly!! :D
