If you're talking about plugins, they're system wide far as I know
and have to be made by hand, unless there is a Debian package for it.
For mozilla-firefox I did to download jdk 1.5 for a JAVA plugin
and make a symbolic link from it's plugin directory to mozilla-firefox's


Extensions can installed directly per user by downloading, providing
they support the Firefox version you have. 

As it is I have two firefoxes right now. I'm not sure is it debian
based problem or firefox, but my mozilla-firefox 'disappears' time
to time. It can't be called nor is there a process for it.
Is this known problem?

I have Sarge + Gnome and Debian packaged firefox
