CHM reader versions used:
1. chmreader-linux_x86_64-gcc3-0.2.3.xpi
2. chmreader-linux_x86-gcc3-0.2.3.xpi

Firefox versions used:
1. 3.0-r1 (x86_64-gcc3)
2. 3.0 (x86-gcc3)

Results:

The respective versions of chm reader install without problem under the two versions of Firefox mentioned.
Trying to open a chm document does not do anything. (This was tried with various chm documents that open without problem under firefox 2 and its corresponding chm reader versions).

    This is what I get in the Error Console when opening a chm file:

    Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "'[JavaScript Error: "Components.classes[kCHMFILE_CONTRACTID] is undefined" {file: "file:///home/[user]/.mozilla/firefox/7i9wd8vo.default/extensions/%7B6e098d65-7d2d-46d4-ada0-2f882a29f795%7D/components/chm_protocol.js" line: 149}]' when calling method: [nsIProtocolHandler::newChannel]" nsresult: "0x80570021 (NS_ERROR_XPC_JAVASCRIPT_ERROR_WITH_DETAILS)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://global/content/bindings/browser.xml :: loadURIWithFlags :: line 186" data: yes]

    and

    Same here.

    Opening CHM files does nothing.

    Same error in the Error console.
