Firefox has a Preferences setting regarding "let web sites install
software" (or something similar) that must be selected in order for
XPI packages to install automatically. That'd be the first thing I'd

Also, I don't think the .xpi file itself ever gets placed on disk (at
least not somewhere the average user would look).
