How does one acquire add-ons for ffx installed behind firewall?

I have several installations of firefox on platforms behind various firewalls w/o internet access. They are maintained provide easy access to LAN servers containing notes/logs, etc. I have used several addons, specifically the All-in-One Sidebar, for several years. However the current addon page wants to auto-install on active browser instead of providing a download that I can migrate to other browsers. Info in text box below is a MSW platform, but also have several *nix installs that I would like to support.

Question - how does one download and NOT install over active browser, but rather migrate to other offline installations.

hello, when i right-click on the add to firefox button on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/all-in-one-sidebar/ & select save link as then the .xpi file of the addon will be downloaded which could then be transferred onto the other pc without internet access...
