Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2008-01-07 12:33:14 EST
XULRunner by design does not ship with an extensions or plugin directory.  This
is a conscious choice by upstream and not one we're going to change. 
Extensions/plugins should be provided by either of: the system[1], the XR app
(e.g. firefox) or the user's profile, not xulrunner itself.

[1] this does not work just yet but I am working on this in a separate bug.
