User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041109 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041109 Firefox/1.0

When building software which includes firefox extensions, it would be very
helpful to have a per-user equivalent of -install-global-extension.  Ie,
-install-local-extension which would install into your
.mozilla/firefox/[profile]/extensions directory.

Will also need -remove-local-extension (see bug #272653)

This is being done in bug 286034
Depends on: 286034

Now that the patch in bug 286034 landed, you can either drop the XPI in
extensions/, which makes Firefox ask user if s/he wants to install the
extension, or just unzip the XPI to extensions/{the-guid-of-extension} and have
it registered automatically without a notice. Test with latest-trunk builds, if
you like (although it currently has quite a few other problems).
