Moved extensions to global, firefox doesn't start

more options

I have Firefox installed in a linux-system, everything was working fine, then i moved all extensions to the global extensions folder, now the problem is, Firefox will not start unless i remove extensions.rdf in the profile-folder, no errormessage is shown, as soon as it starts it recreates extensions.rdf and then won't start the next time. I've already tried cleaning out the complete profile, which will work the first time firefox starts, but as soon as it has created extensions.rdf it will not start again.

Apparently the problem was caused by symlinking the extensions-folder into the global app folder. This doesn't really make any sense to me but firefox seems to have weird problems with a setup like that. I now simply copied the extensions to the global app folder and the problem seems to be gone.
