i am trying to install an Extension to every users of my Computer using the %MOZILLA_DIR%\distribution\bundles\MY_EXTRACTED_XPI_GUID_FOLDER (windows computer). When i first run Firefox, it shows a warning page (about:newaddons....)

I can't affort to disable this about:newaddon{GUID} which ask me if i want to enable this new addon or not ... i have tried many default_pref values but none seems to be working...

Is there a way to automatically enable this extension ?

Using Firefox 27.0.1

Hi rebrec,

There are a couple of ways to do this, the best example is how the enterprise firefox community implements Windows deployment. As well as adding registry keys for all users: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/d.../Adding_Extensions_using_the_Windows_Registry
