Command line extension install

Hi,

We're an open-source project building a virtual machine dev env for LAMP.
https://github.com/quickstart/quickstart-drupal/wiki

We'd like to include some common web development extensions.  Our build system is commandline Puppet scripts.  We'd prefer to not have a manual configuration - (20 manual configurations is alot of time for testing and building)

What's the best way to install extensions?

This wouldn't work if Firefox wouldn't do updates:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Installing_extensions

This didn't work on Ubuntu 12.04 /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/extensions
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Developer_Guide/Customizing_Firefox#Including_extensions_with_your_distribution_of_Firefox

I found this but didn't totally understand it's ramifications:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1485995

I did this with FEBE, but that seems jinky.  

What's the best way?

Thanks!

Command-line Extension Installer
Something along the lines of install-mozilla-extension (--firefox|--thunderbird|...) \ ext1 ext2 ... Where extN is either a file or a URL, in either case something .xpi. Something like this would make remote/bulk installing/upgrading/extending of mozilla+family installations much easier.

Hi all. I'm developing a firefox extension non bootstrap, and it would be very helpful to me to automatize its installation for rapid development. Specially I would like to be able to restart firefox from command line and reinstall my extension. I have this bash / bat script that builds the xpi file for the extension.

How to pass command line arguments to an extension using a command line on MacOS?
I am developing an extension that processes some command line options. I want to invoke the Firefox from a command line like this: > ...../firefox -myarg1 -myarg2 I am running into a problem on Mac OS.

determining which plugins and extensions are installed from the command line
Hello, I am working on automated bug triage for Firefox and Thunderbird on Ubuntu(Linux). I am wondering if it is possible to determine which plugins and extensions are installed via the command line. Currently, we ask the bug reporter to look in about:plugins to see which plugins they have installed. I would like to skip this step so that the information is included in the orginal issue report.

command-line install only
Hi, has anyone managed to create a standalone command-line build system? I tried following http://delphi.wikia.com/wiki/Setting_up_a_Delphi_Build_Machine but with little success.

Installing Firefox Extensions
When I attempt to install extentions to my Firefox 1.5.0.1 on my Mac OS 10.4.5, I get the following pop up message: "Software installation is currently disabled. Click Edit Options...to enable it and try again." Clicking Edit Options brings me to the Content tab of Firefox Preferences. The only thing I can see as possibly relevant is "Warn me when web sites try to install extensions or themes." I've unclicked that, and every other option in Preferences that seems remotely relevant, and I continue to get the "Software installation is currently d...

Hi, I want to open Firefox by command line sending an url as argument (first part) and after I want to know if the url was completely loaded (second part).
