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?
