#13 XPInstall on MacOS X completely hosed

developers has noticed that many *.xpi's makes Mozilla crash on install. Thus, XPInstall has been swithed off in 1.3final for MacOS X (bug 186959) which of course makes 1.3final un-usable for most advanced users. see bug 197105 for meta-information. This feature-lack alone ought to be enough for a 1.3.1 release. There was a little discussion on irc / mozilla as to whether this justified a 1.3.1 release

Personally, I've obeserver the crash with leech (and filed a bug on it) but MultiZilla , Googlebox , BannerBlind and AdBlock worked perfectly for me.
