I would like to either install firefox addons, specified by URLs or XPI files, to the currently active firefox profile programmatically, or at least to make them available (disabled, but listed in the extensions page).

What I've tried:

  1. download xpi files to the ~/.mozilla/extensions/ directory
  2. download xpi files to the ~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE/extensions/ directory

The addon does not appear in the list of available extensions
