have to figure out if users can enable/disable the system wide

for per-user control. And you certainly can have some oddness with
combinations of plugins enabled, so enabling installed plugins by
default may not be possible without affecting end-user experiences...

Additionally it is not only a per-user issue... it is a per-profile issue, which a firefox user may have several of (I personally have several of them for my main user account just for testing purposes).

It's both per-user and per-profile. You can install extensions under .mozilla/extensions/$target_app_id which will be available for all profiles. This is new in recent builds. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=311008

$target_app_id is defined by application.ini for your application.

cat $(rpm -ql $target_app | grep application.ini) | grep ^ID
