I am working to install the widevine.xpi DRM plugin for Firefox and am currently unable to find a way to push this plugin out from our Kbox.  How would one go about pushing out a Firefox Extension from the kbox?  We are using Firefox ESR 17.10 with Windows 7.  Thank you in advance!

Well I have figured out the answer to my own question..


Here is what I did:


I opened the .XPI file in winrar, I then extracted the contents into a new folder.  After doing this I opened the insatll.rdf file in notepad+ and found the following line:


<RDF xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:em="http://www.mozilla.org/2004/em-rdf#">

  <Description about="urn:mozilla:install-manifest">




I then took the em:id = {2d3fbcf7-be69-4433-8858-c621a8d0e58d} and made that the name of the folder containing the files I extracted from the .xpi file


Now to distribute with the Kbox I made the follwoing mods:


I zipped the contents of the extracted .xpi file using winrar and uploaded them into the kbox.  I then made a file sync using the zipped contents and set it to place them in the following directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\extensions\{2d3fbcf7-be69-4433-8858-c621a8d0e58d}

 and made sure to check the box "Create Location"

The kbox will then push out the zipped files to the selected PC, Create the folder, {2d3fbcf7-be69-4433-8858-c621a8d0e58d} and extract the files to it.  Gotta love it!  The only thing I would like to do additionaly to this is have it so it does not ask the user enable the plugin when they open firefox but if I figure that out I will be sure to add it to this thread!
