Anyone know the best way to install Firefox addon to network computers?  We have a need to use GPO's against firefox, and have located the addon for allowing this, but not sure how to automatically deploy this.  Anyone have a good plan for doing this?

No apparently it is an .xpi file that is normally downloaded manually from the add-ons site for Firefox...
