    I used SEOQuake often with FireFox 3.6.17. When I installed FireFox 4, SEOQuake stopped working. The Add-On is there. It’s supposedly installed. It appears in my toolbar, and it’s supposedly on. But nothing happens when I try to use it. It’s as if nothing is there. No results of any kind. I had to go back to FireFox 3.6.17 just to keep SEOQuake.

    Am I doing something wrong? Can SEOQuake be made to work with FF4?
    Will SEOQuake be made compatible with FF4?
    FF4.1 was just released. Does this make a difference?

    Any help greatly appreciated.
