Do Plugins sync?


I understand that Add-ons are synced between desktop browsers. However are Plugins synced too?

I plan to create a sync account for an institution, which can be synced with online distance students, so there are less problems in terms of browser settings and plugins etc.

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0

In the initial version of Add-on Sync, only extensions and themes installed from addons.mozilla.org were sync'd. I doubt that this will expand outside of the active profile folder to system-installed plugins such as Flash. You can see some of the documentation on this feature here (and in linked pages): https://wiki.mozilla.org/Services/Sync/Addon_Sync
