Install extension silently in Firefox 41

Kuphostiwe

I'm making automatic installer for special Firefox extensions. I have read couple of articles about that, but none of the described methods are not helped. What I tried to do:

- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\browser\extensions
- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\extensions
- Placed unpacked extension directory in another directory and added record in registry (`HKLM\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\extensions`, key is extension id and value is full path to unpacked extension)

In all ways name of unpacked extension directory was:

- Random name
- ID from install.rdf #1 (`{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}` for example)
- ID from install.rdf #2 (`prism@developer.mozilla.org` for example)  

And, as i said, all methods don't give me expectable result. Firefox don't show extensions in list and don't show any notification. How can i solve it? What actual method using in current version of FF? Target browser is Firefox 41, system - Windows 7 x64 Thanks!

{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384} is the GUID of Firefox and not the ID of the extension, so make sure to use the ID of the extension under Description > id and not the 'id' listed under 'targetApplication' and surround a GUID with curly brackets and append the .xpi file extension.

Thank you! In fact - I used an incorrect ID (both from "targetApplication"). Now I was able to install the plug-in by copying plugin directory to %FF_DIR%\browser\extensions.
