Actually I maintain some computers with multi-user FF installs and I'd
like to be able to install important extensions like adblockplus and
noscript automatically and I need to be sure that all users of the
computer will continue to use these extensions without having to update
them. Even though the update is simple many people don't do it and as a
result the extensions get disabled.

I am not sure if packaging FF extensions is wise, but I know there are
valid use cases and I am convinced that we as the Fedora project can
handle the updates better then we currently do. I am not demanding
something unreasonable, all I want is that we apply our update
guidelines to one of the key applications we ship.
