Isnt chrome already like this? I spent 45 minutes trying to find a way to install a non extension store extension this weekend and gave up after being blocked repeatedly.



It's actually incredibly simple, just rename the .crx to a .zip and load it as an unpacked extension.

I don't think what chrome does is relevant in this discussion at least not in the context of defining what is the the correct way for mozilla to go forward.


Unfortunately it's relevant in the discussion of what Mozilla can get away with.
