I think it would be wise to allow an user to install the extention using an
option like "Install this extension anyways" if the extention protection toolbar
is opened.

The Popup blocker toolbar has an option to show the popup anyways (without
adding the site to allowed sited).

An equivalent feature for extentions would be appreciated I think (if I want to
allow this install for this time, without adding the site to the allow list).

Unexperienced computerusers do not understand the save to disc, install from
disc methode.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open http://fireftp.mozdev.org/
2. Try to install the extention
3. A extention security toolbar is opened

Actual Results:  
Without an option to allow this install anyways (for this time only).

Expected Results:  
An toolbar option to install this extention anyways, without adding this site to
the allow list (I only want to install it once, one extention) or using the
download methode.
