Installed Firefox add-in for Admin. It's not visible to normal users. Permission changes required?

hi guys,

We have some stores that are locked down for normal users. They wanted me to install the internet explorer add-in for Firefox. I did this as administrator on the domain for this PC.
So as administrator, if you open Firefox you can to Tools->IE Tab Options.

However, I am unable to make this add-in appear when normal users are logged in. And when logged in as normal user, the Tools->IE Tab Options doesn't appear. The option isn't even available. This must be a permissions related matter?

Do you know where I have to make the changes to security?

Thanks
Yashy

No, this is not the way the add-on on Mozilla works. It never install the addons system wide, it is per User vise.

You would need to install it for the per User.
