Firefox 3.5.xx 3.6.xx addons install

maybe someone might be interested

as described here:::

Disable install-global-extension

so the only option to install .XPI is to copy them to extension folder and when lunch Firefox it will detect and install them...

but extension is a subfolder of Profile which is something like that XXXXX.default ( where xxx is random)

so so far so good....

so here is an silent install doesn't matter what is the name of profile folder:

@ECHO OFF

setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

ECHO.

"!programfiles!\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -createprofile default

for /f "delims=" %%i in ("!appdata!\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*.default") do set path1=%%~pi

mkdir "!path1!\extensions\"

copy "*.xpi" "!path1!\extensions\"

P.S pay attention :: EVEN IFYOU CHOOSE TO CREATE PROFILE name LIKE "!programfiles!\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -createprofile %username% THE PROFILE FOLDER will be XXXX.%username%

From my point of view it's an easy way to install firefox addons and it's working for 3.XX

Hey there

I'm trying to make this script of yours to work with xcopy.

reason: i make a full backup of Firefox addons and other settings with FEBE and just extract the backup file's to the xxxxx.default dir.

i find it easier also it saves all settings of addons and other.

this is the code:

setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
"!programfiles!\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -createprofile default
for /f "delims=" %%i in ("!appdata!\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*.default") do set path1=%%~pi
xcopy %systemdrive%\install\firefoxadd "!path1!" /e /i /h

problem is it copys everything in the profiles\* folder, not in profiles\xxxxx.default\*

any idea whats wrong?

Thanks!
