Re: [K12OSN] firefox addons globaly

yes, we use this method too, but with a mix.

first, try to remove the extensions.ini , extensions.cache and compreg.dat from firefox' user profile folder.
an reload firefox to let it re-register the extensions. i think this should help. if not, i suggest...

second, what we actually use is a mix. we install globally some extension but also, we have a Sandbox user in which we install and configure firefox (and other applications) as we like and then we copy the user's specific application configuration files (.mozzila , .openoffice ... ) to all other users in the system and change ownership
very easy :-)

i can send you the copy script if you like this method.

ok, it says to use the command line switch:

firefox -install-global-extension "/path/to/extension"
so I tried
firefox -install-global-extension "/root/Desktop/menu_editor-"

I then open firefox and check the addons and it is not listed.  Has anyone
tried this command before?
