I want to be able to *automatically* install extensions common to all users in the browsers directory. I may want to combine the functionality with distribution via alternative package formats, such as rpm. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Would be nice-to-have! If we could fix this up, perhaps a smart installer could park the current set of chromes somewhere while installing an upgrade - and then automagically re-install them.
Is this not now closable -- the new Extension Manager does a lovely job of picking up as many current extensions as possible.
Can that [the extension manager] install *without user interaction* and on the system directory instead of the user profile, or maybe even a temporary mirror of the former. If not, it's of no use in this conjunction...
you can do this with -install-global-extension command line option but see also bug 265859
