Firefox 1.5 and LiveHTTPHeaders (0.11)

One of the most useful plugins for firefox is LiveHTTPHeaders which allows you to see the headers for both the requests and responses for web pages. When I upgraded to Firefox 1.5 I found that I needed a new version of the plugin (0.11) and although most things worked Right Click -> View Page Info -> Headers didn't. It was giving an error message about how I needed to copy a file out of my profile and into the Firefox installation directory. After trying this a few times and it still not working I went to the bug tracker and found a bug with my described problem. Installing the attached package makes the plugin work fine again. Yay.
