On other distributions (eg old Red Hat's) using firefox 184.108.40.206 I can
install global extensions using
# firefox --install-global-extension some-extension.xpi
This does NOT work on my Ubuntu Feisty install though (firefox 220.127.116.11).
There are no errors; but nothing seems to happen either.
Does anyone know if this does/should work on Ubuntu?

If you're going to make global changes, you need to be root... it seems that you were running the command as root on Red Hat because the prompt in your command is # and not $. To run a command as root on Ubuntu, put sudo before the command... making it < sudo firefox --install-global-extension some-extension.xpi >
