While developing it's easier to work with files that are not zipped. For 
Firefox 1.06, just install your extension and then edit the following 
line for your extension in <profile>/chrome/chrome.rdf:


Remove the 'jar:' and change the file url to the directory you want to 
work in:


Save the following four lines as user.js in your profile directory:

user_pref("javascript.options.showInConsole", true );
user_pref("nglayout.debug.disable_xul_cache", true );
user_pref("browser.dom.window.dump.enabled", true );
user_pref("javascript.options.strict", true );

the disable_xul_cache pref allows you to see changes without restarting.
