Is there a way to avoid logging in as each one with GUI and starting both browsers and installing the plugins by hand?
There is a clean way to do this by simply copying the Firefox profile from the
I tested this, and it worked. An alternative is to use Firefox Sync. However, that will keep all the Bookmarks and History the same if anything changes.
The same technique can be used with Chromium:
Chromium also has an option where you can sign in with your Google account and have all your settings, Bookmarks, and History sunc across your Chromium installations. However, as with Firefox, this might not be applicable to your needs.
There is a script which will make you to install Firefox-Add ons for all users of Ubuntu. You must read this & thats where the credit goes to.
What you have to do means , you just have to send the required firefox xpi as input to the script.
