 <h4 id="sunbird">Sunbird</h4>  
 <p>  
 These instructions are for Sunbird 0.2.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Sunbird's extension manager is broken.  
 Before you install Journal,  
 prepare Sunbird by installing a working extension manager.  
 </p>  
   
   
 <h5>Preparing Sunbird</h5>  
 <p><strong>Note: </strong>  
 If you installed  
 <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org">Calendar Help</a>  
 in Sunbird, then Sunbird is already prepared and you can skip this section.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 To prepare Sunbird, there are four steps:  
 </p>  
   
 <ol>  
 <li>Ensure Sunbird is not running.</li>  
   
 <li>Go to Sunbird's <code>components</code> directory.</li>  
   
 <li>Download the file <code>nsExtensionManager.js</code> from the table of downloads above,  
 overwriting the one supplied with Sunbird.  
 </li>  
   
 <li>Restart Sunbird.  
 You should not notice anything different.  
 </li>  
 </ol>  
   
 <p><strong>Note:</strong>  
 The extension manager fix does not provide a user interface.  
 </p>  
   
 <h5 id="sbinstall">Installing Journal in Sunbird</h5>  
 <p>  
 To install Journal, download the XPI file from the table of downloads above  
 and store it on your local machine, remembering where you put it.  
 For example, right-click the link, then from the context menu choose Save Link As...  
 and choose a location.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Start Sunbird using the command line option  
 <code>-install-global-extension</code> followed by the full path and name  
 where you put the XPI file.  
 For example, you might use a command like:  
 <pre>  
 sunbird.exe -install-global-extension C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\journal-0.1-en-US.xpi  
 </pre>  
 Sunbird installs the extension and exits, without opening its user interface.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Restart Sunbird normally.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Open Journal by using the menu choice Tools - Journal.  
 </p>  
   
   
 <h5>Manual installation in Sunbird</h5>  
 <p>  
 If the installation fails when you use the instructions above,  
 then the extension manager fix might not have worked in your version of Sunbird.  
 You might be able to install Journal manually using the  
 instructions in this section.  
 </p>  
   
 <ol>  
 <li>  
 Delete and reinstall Sunbird to remove any damaged or unwanted files  
 left after the failed installation.  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 Download the XPI file from the table of downloads above  
 and store it on your local machine, remembering where you put it.  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 Use a zip tool to unzip the XPI file.  
 (You might have to rename it <code>.zip</code> first, depending on your zip tool.)  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 Ensure Sunbird is not running.  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 Copy the file <code>journal.jar</code> from the  
 XPI's <code>chrome</code> directory to Sunbird's <code>chrome</code> directory.  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 In Sunbird's <code>chrome</code> directory, delete the file  
 <code>chrome.rdf</code> and the directory <code>overlayinfo</code>.  
 (The final step rebuilds them.)  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 Edit the file <code>installed-chrome.txt</code>.  
 add these lines by copying and pasting them from here:  
 <blockquote><pre>  
 content,install,url,jar:resource:/chrome/journal.jar!/content/journal/  
 locale,install,url,jar:resource:/chrome/journal.jar!/locale/en-US/journal/  
 skin,install,url,jar:resource:/chrome/journal.jar!/skin/classic/journal/  
 </pre></blockquote>  
 then save and close the file.  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 Restart Sunbird.  
 Sunbird automatically rebuilds the file  
 <code>chrome.rdf</code> and the directory <code>overlayinfo</code>.  
 </li>  
   
 <li>  
 Open Journal by using the menu choice Tools - Journal.  
 </li>  
   
 </ol>  
   
   
   
 <h4 id="mozilla">Mozilla Suite</h4>  
 <p>  
 Install Journal as an extension in the normal way.  
 For example, if you are reading this page in Mozilla,  
 click the link to the XPI file in the table of downloads above.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Restart Mozilla.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Open Journal by using the menu choice Window - Journal,  
 or by using the Journal task icon at the bottom left.  
 </p>  
   
   
   
 <h4 id="netscape">Netscape 7</h4>  
 <p>  
 Install Journal as an extension in the normal way.  
 For example, if you are reading this page in Netscape,  
 click the link to the XPI file in the table of downloads above.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Restart Netscape.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Open Journal by using the menu choice Window - Journal,  
 or by using the Journal task icon at the bottom left.  
 </p>  
   
   
   
   
   
 <h4 id="shared">Shared installation</h4>  
 <p>  
 If you are installing Journal on a multi-user system where more than one  
 user will access the same installed package, perform a global installation  
 (not a profile installation).  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 For Thunderbird or Firefox, perform a global installation by adapting the  
 installation instructions for <a href="#sbinstall">Sunbird</a>, above.  
 For Mozilla Suite, Netscape or Sunbird, follow the normal installation instructions above.  
 </p>  
   
 <!-- NOT USED YET...  
 <p>  
 Ensure that you open Journal as the final step in the installation.  
 The first time you open Journal it creates a file,  
 and this completes the installation.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 Also check that all the intended users have access to the installed files:  
 <blockquote><pre>  
 chrome/journal.jar  
 <!-- chrome/journaldtd/content/journaldtd/parent.dtd -->  
 </pre></blockquote>  
 </p>
