Deploying Firefox with extensions
In an enterprise environment, it may be necessary to deploy Firefox with a set of predefined extensions. This can be done easily on the Firefox ESR build from the Firefox installation directory. These steps also work if you are customizing the Windows installer.
Step 1: Create directories
In the Firefox ESR installation directory, you will need create some required directories. First, create a directory called
distribution. Inside of that directory, create another called
Step 2: Add extensions
We now need to add our extensions into the
extensions directory that we created above. This will require you to know the add-on ID for each extension that you wish to add to this directory.
To add the extensions to this directory, you should include the extension's XPI file. It will need to be renamed to the add-on ID, while being careful to keep the
.xpi file extension.
Alternatively, you can also create another directory in
extensions named after the add-on ID. You can then unzip the extension into this directory.
