Packaging an extension to thunderbird installer

I have to include the "mouse_gestures-1.5-fx+mz+zm+tb.xpi" into the
thunderbird installer so that when the user installs the thunderbird
installer in his machine, the extension will get installed into
thunderbird by default.
To create a thunderbird installer I used the section 6.4.3.2 of the
site:-

http://www.sm.luth.se/~alapaa/file_f...ac/ch06_04.htm
But nothing worked out from me.
Is it possible to package an extension into an installer?if yes How!!!!

Thanks

I'm not sure if the CCK exists for Thunderbird, but that would be the 
root to go. Or perhaps a batch file? To install the extension afterwards?

Cannot install extensions in fresh Thunderbird Install
This messages is copied both the n.p.m.mail-news and .builds newsgroups. After a fresh install of Thunderbird 1.0.6, I cannot install Extensions. I download the .xpi, and then click "install" in the Extension Manager, and select the ".xpi" file and nothing happens: It returns me to the extension manager. The problem occurs both in the source tree and in the system locations, as root or as a regular user. Extensions that were installed with a different version of TB work in the newer version, as well. Any help would be appreciated! System information availa...

Installing extensions in Thunderbird 5 by using the extensions folder
Dear all, as already described at [1] and [2] it was possible to install extensions by copying the XPI files to the %profile%/extensions folder. Unfortunately Thunderbird ignores this procedure in version 5. Does anyone know how to install extensions via the command line or can me point to an according manual?

Thunderbird extension install
Hi, I've been trying to create a Thunderbird extension, and http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/specs/extensions.html recommends basing it on the Offline extension. Adapting Offline files, I got a skeleton, but the installation I've copied isn't really satisfactory (in Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 on Gentoo): 1) I can only install as root. Offline asks the user whether to install in profile or in Thunderbird directory; under my user account, installation in profile fails with error -239, in Thunderbird directory with error -215. 2) The extension doesn't show in ...

Thunderbird extension installs
Hi folks, after having installed Thunderbird 2.0.0.4 (Weilbacher) I tried to install add-ons in vain. All installation links (Extension, Themes, Spelling dictionaries) in the appropriate dialogs simply do nothing. This is also the case when I have Firefox running in parallel with SET LIBPATHSTRICT=T etc. What am I doing wrong?
