Question including add-ons inside a firefox self-compiled package


Hi everybody,
is it possible to include an add-on (or more) inside a self-compiled txz package for firefox?

Actually I'm trying to build a fully localized version adding UI localization and (possibly) the italian dictionary. The latter is distributed as an .xpi (zip archive) and is supposed to be installed from inside firefox, so I don't know how to include it at compile time or at least before building the txz...

can someone help me??

thanks in advance...

For Slack64 :
Install extension for your user, and copy the inside of the user's .mozilla/firefox/account/extensions in the /usr/lib64/firefox/extensions folder of your package.
For language packs, i think you must edit /usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/profile/prefs.js

Please post your progress as it's an interesting thread.

I'm posting back on this thread just to let you know that I successfully compiled firefox including the italian dictionary (which is an addon), but when starting ffox for the first time the addons popup showed up and told me that the dictionary version wasn't compatible with that version of ffox... the strange thing is that I was using that same dictionary on that same version of firefox with my default user and everything worked like a charm... however, I uninstalled the addon and reinstalled from the addons popup and it worked...

I'll keep investigating in this sense...


PS (a bit offtopic)
I've successfully built a version of firefox using qt instead of gtk2 on slackware64-current... it isn't usable at all but it's funny to see it... I hope the guys at cairo keep working on cairo-qt...


bye
