In my opinion, the ExtensionManager extension is buggy
and doesn't completely uninstall extensions leaving
them in a half installed state. I recommend that you
install the Mnenhy extension (http://mnenhy.mozdev.org)
And then use it's chrome manager (Tools->Chrome Manager)
<http://mnenhy.mozdev.org/chroman.html> to really
remove any remaining bits of the older version of
xSidebar before trying to install a newer version.
