Registry to install extension to FireFox 24
Hi, I want to deploy a FireFox extension automatically to a box via the Windows registry. Before FireFox 23, I am using the steps in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Adding_Extensions_using_the_Windows_Registry to add an extension.
I deploy the extension to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\extensions and create a registry to point to this.
It worked pretty well until FireFox 24.
In Firefox, it seems it does not recognize the extension deployed in this manner. When I open FireFox, click Extensions, I see nothing.
Do you know if there is any step change in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Adding_Extensions_using_the_Windows_Registry for FireFox 24?

Hello windwind, any luck if you create the registry key again ?
this seems to the key.. FireFox changes the location to store the extension.. Thanks
i tried to reinstall registry before. it did not work. cor-el's suggestion helped.
