To support bug 476430 we want to be able to mark certain install locations as installing their add-ons disabled by default.

patch rev 1

This adds the pref extensions.autoDisableScopes. By default it isn't set to anything so all add-ons install enabled as normal.

Dave, would that require devdoc or userdoc needed?

Yeah it's probably worth documenting this for other application's that want to use it

The extention is disabled at Firefox startup and the warning appears every time.
Also, the pref extensions.autoDisableScopes is present.
