I want to download the Firefox's new "No Restart" plugins without having to install them. Does anyone know a way to do this?

So you want to download them, but not install them? – greduan Apr 18 '13 at 22:30

If you search using Mozilla's website (, you should be able to download any add-on by right-clicking the Add to Firefox button and selecting Save Link As.

To install the addon, you can then simply drag the file from your desktop or file browser to the Firefox window.
