Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.install Mozilla Firefox 2. install CCK 3. try to make any package with a xpi Actual Results: All settings do work, as it seems; except the additional plugins are not available. Expected Results: The additional XPI should be installed, as if I install them manually. I have used the zip.exe from http://www.info-zip.org/. It seems everything works fine, only the XPI's are not taken over.. I checked the xpi file, and the included xpi are there, also the config file contains the infos.. Sofar the xpi should work...
I can confirm this. I'm not using an external zip tool, however that shouldn't be required with FF 3.5, right? I generated an XPI with CCK and some additional extensions. I can successfully install the bundle with the Add-On manager, however -install-global-extension will not work. The install.rdf and individual XPIs are extracted to %ProgramFiles%\Mizilla Firefox\extensions\email@example.com and that's it. Neither the CCK package nor my additional extensions are installed :-(
Did you try dragging and dropping the XPI to the browser to see if that works? I'm wondering if -install-global-extension doesn't support multiple XPIs? I think I'm going to update the CCK so that it doesn't use this mechanism for packaging multiple XPIs, but bundles them directly.
Yes, drag and drop works.
So it definitely appears install-global-extension doesn't work with XPI bundles. I have an entirely different idea on how to handle this that I'll try to get implemented.
I've reworked how XPIs are installed for the new version. This concept should work better. However, install-global-extension was removed, so this won't work anyway: https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Command_Line_Options#Add-ons
