Manual installation of extensions is a pain when you want the same
firefox setup in different environments (home, work, laptop). Doing
'yum install firefox-...' is much easier.

Security is another issue; I trust an rpm package from an official
repository more than a lousy, unsigned xpi from an ip-only webpage
(e.g. TBP).
