How do I install Gears on another Mozilla based browser?


There are 3 steps:
  1. Go to the install directory of Gears:
    Mac OS X - ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<yourprofile>/extensions/{000a9d1c-beef-4f90-9363-039d445309b8}
    Windows - C:\Program Files\Google\Google Gears\Firefox
    Linux - ./mozilla/firefox/<yourprofile>/extensions/{000a9d1c-beef-4f90-9363-039d445309b8}
  2. Modify the install.rdf file:
    1. Do a search on any search engine for the GUID of the Mozilla variant you are using. The example below uses Flock's
    2. Add this to your install.rdf file under the last </em:targetApplication> (note: id is the GUID):
      <em:targetApplication>
      	<Description>         
      		<em:id>{a463f10c-3994-11da-9945-000d60ca027b}</em:id> 
      		<em:maxVersion>6.02</em:maxVersion> 
      		<em:minVersion>0.2</em:minVersion> 
      	</Description> 
      </em:targetApplication>
      			
  3. Zip up the contents of the directory, rename the .ZIP to .XPI, drag the .XPI into your Mozilla variant.
