There is nothing on how to find the darn things after you've installed them. It would help to know where they're likely to show up, about using "customize" to install toolbar buttons, etc. There is nothing along these lines in the FAQ, and usually not much at the "homepage" for the extension either. Reproducible: Always I have already documented the use of extensions at my website. [http://cybercoyote.org/software/extensions.shtml#secret]

I'm leaning toward WONTFIXing this one. It's getting into Add-ons user-support territory; and it's incredibly vague.
Virtually all extensions are unique, so explaining how you customize them are not very straightforward. People who install an extension should look for documentation on how to use it at the place they installed the extension from. That said, we could add a section in http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Customizing+your+Firefox+with+add-ons about the fact that you can (usually) right-click an extension in the list and select Options to change settings.
this seems fixed to me.
myles7897 is right. The "Extension optionspreferences" section of <http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Customizing+your+Firefox+with+add-ons> has always been there.
