The same thing happens to me. I haven't yet figured out how to fix it.

Okay I'll take a look at the code and see if anything comes to me.

First thing I noticed is the file .mozilla/firefox/CurrentURL doesn't get
created.

I had the same problem.
I solved it by:

1. Open the firefox_extension folder with terminal. Type make .
2. Open the firefox_extension/chrome folder with terminal. Type Make .

I can confirm this worked for me.

Many thanks.

Is it reasonable to expect the packagers to do this step, or to at least tell me I need to do it?
