I'm having a similar problem. Same set up, run the install which completes. Then add the Chrome add-in from the app store and that works great.

But the firefox add-in is disabled with the following message:

However when I installed xmarks via the firefox add-in system on completion it gave me the option to install lastpass which I did, and that works.

So, Steps to Install Lastpass on Firefox 5:

  • Install xmarks add on
  • Restart Browser
  • Complete xmarks installation process
  • Use link to install lastpass

This is tested and works. However you might be able to simply install lastpass via the firefox extension system rather than the lastpass website. I haven't tried it, but I suspect it would work.

[Update] The version firefox installs from the FF extension manager is 1.74 so there you go, ignore the lastpass install and use the one from the firefox extension manager (add-ons) instead
