Default I'm having troubles installing a Firefox theme

I'm using the royale XP theme now and I've been searching for a Firefox skin to go with it. I tried a couple and outlook blue 2003 was a pretty good color but the tabs are orange and it's annoying so I'm trying to use a theme I just found on Deviantart. The problem is the download is a zipped folder and I have no idea how to install it because I usually get them from the official site.

URL: http://yeffrey.deviantart.com/art/Si...Theme-76491567

The discussion on the bottom of the page explained I need to rename the download to a JAR file and dragging it into the add-on menu would install it but it doesn't work, it only displays a little restricted cursor, can you help me out?

Yeah, I couldn't drag it either.

I tried different things..nothing worked.

Try uploading it to the mozilla theme site and then press install theme.

I couldn't get this to work...but maybe it will work for you :S? http://developer.mozilla.org/samples/installjar.html

That was a good idea but I think the problem is renaming the file, it simply became 'Simple_Blue_Firefox_Theme_by_YeFFreY.jar.zip' how do I change a zip file . So you tried, meaning you saw the files in the folder? because I don't recognize the install.rdf or the chrome manifest file but the 'chrome' looks like everything is ready if only I could just install it, it looks great!

Oh- yeah at first it was .zip.Jar for me as well.

To get it to .JAR you have to save as --> blahblah.JAR

if it doesn't work, I've uploaded the .JAR for you:

I downloaded it but it still doesn't seem to work with the uploader or the dragging, this is weird.

ok take the .zip file and rename it to .jar (DONT UNZIP) then drag it into the themes box.
