I'd really like to have some way to install extensions/.xpi files without a GUI
or any questions asked.

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.

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...

but see also bug 265859
