Why is firefox packaged in such a broken way (versioned dirs under
/usr/lib)? I do not see any sense for such a layout on an rpm managed
system.

Alternatively, why not create a

| /usr/lib*/firefox-<version>/extensions -> /usr/lib*/firefox/extensions

symlink and place extensions into the unversioned dir?

FWIW, strace says firefox does stat /usr/lib/firefox/extensions/ on startup.
