Configure Firefox to automatically install a Add-On without User Interaction


We have a security application add on that uses Firefox. I am looking for a solution to allow Firefox to automatically install the Security addon without user interaction. If a user does not accept the addon it would defeat our security application. Any way to do this? About:config or something else?

if this addon is directed to the general public then mozilla's policies say that it is mandatory to show the opt-in screen - otherwise you might even be blacklisted...
