Some ideas taken from bug 953598 (bio 151), comment 13 (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=953598 (bio 151)#c13):

- Doesn't start with the OS by default.
- No UI to set: start with OS

Now that I have a shiny new hammer: could be possible to add a shortcut to the Autorun menu using some Windows API. Would be enough to do this job in my opinion. Could start as extension first.

There may be some relevant code in http://svn.mozilla.org/projects/webrunner/trunk/components/src/windows/nsDesktopEnvironmentWin.cpp (around the Get/SetAutoStart functions).

Sadly, it's too late to work on this for 0.3.

(Since I'm looking at this bug...) the updated webrunner code (which I hope to replace the system tray code with) has this functionality for all operating systems. I don't have the repo available wiht me currently, but when someone gets around to looking at this again!
