I have several Add-ons that state that they will install/uninstall after Firefox restarts but never does.
I have several Add-Ons that state "This add-on will be installed (uninstalled in some cases) when Firefox is restarted." No matter how many times I restart Firefox they do not install or uninstall.
Some of the Add-ons include Adobe DLM (which is a major pain in the ars to begin with), NoScript, and United States English Spellchecker. I have had problems with other Add-ons not installing after after an update but after several attempts to reinstall them from the Add-on Gallery the finally installed again.

Try resetting the Extension Manager.
With Firefox closed, rename the following files in your profile folder:
They'll be re-created when you open Firefox.
Note : Although unwanted files/folders can be deleted, renaming them is generally considered a safer option. This achieves the same result, but allows the user to retrieve any possibly required information from them later on. In the case above, rename the above 4 files as , 'extensionsOLD.ini', 'extensionsOLD.cache', 'extensionsOLD.rdf, 'compatibilityOLD.ini'
