Okay, I think I got it. Here is a "use at your own risk" test package:


I have more things I want to do to this, but I might not get to it for a
day or two. At the very minimum, the bookmarks need to be updated.

I'm also thinking about splitting this into two packages. The logic for
taking a firefox extension (xpi) and installing it globally appears to
be generic, it should be able to be used with any extension. I'm
thinking about making it into a script and packaging it separately so it
will be easy for people to load their own global extensions.
