Software Deployment Question


How do you deploy plugins for Firefox 40+?

11/03/2015 1386 views
Hi,

I am a novice when it comes to deploying plugins. I have 2 xpi files to deploy (Zotero) and I am wondering how would I go about it? I have tried googling this and none of the suggestions I find work. Your help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Some useful links which had helped me earlier for installing xpi.

Check global install in the below link.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Installing_extensions

Using Registry method ( Note: Xpi has to be extracted first)

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Adding_Extensions_using_the_Windows_Registry

Also check this link.

Or else Install the plugin and copy the folder(%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profile.default\extensions to another machine. still it will prompt for installation. To avoid it change this.

%appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles\profile.default\prefs.js
user_pref("dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npietab2.dll", true);

This method also worked for me.
