Extension data is still loading - try again in a few seconds

If you get the message "Extension data is still loading ... try again in a few seconds" while attempting to use any part of FEBE, it usually means your extension database (the files that contain information about installed add-ons) has become corrupt. While seemingly a fairly rare occurrence, it appears to happen most often when upgrading Firefox.

There is a relatively easy fix. With Firefox closed go to your profile directory. From that directory, delete the following files (if they exits):

  • extensions.ini
  • extensions.cache
  • extensions.rdf
  • extensions.sqlite
  • extensions.sqlite-journal

When Firefox is next started, all the files will be rebuilt from scratch.

This should eliminate the "Extension data is still loading ... " problem. If it does not, please start of new thread so we may debug it.
