I'm on WinXP using Firefox 0.9.3 and I've been wondering about the DOM 
Inspector too. I see it listed in my Extensions window, which I thought 
meant that it was installed, but I see that the "Uninstall" button is 
faded -- so I guess that means it's not installed. Then again there 
doesn't seem to be an option to install it and when I click on the 
"Update" button, I see that "Firefox encountered problems when trying to 
find updates for some items". Then when I check the website for Firefox 
extensions, there's no listing at all for the DOM Inspector.

Actually, if my memory serves me correctly, there now seem to be 
significantly fewer extensions listed for Firefox. Have they weeded out 
a lot of them -- without putting any kind of note on the site to explain 
the change?
