But, the OP said "I have succeeded to built one ..." which would imply
downloading code and at least enough developer knowledge to do a build.

I'd assume if I downloaded the *code* for a Firefox plugin, there would
be steps I'd need to follow in order to build and install it, which
would, I'd think, be part of the documentation on the Firefox
developers' page(s).

I would expect to have to do something different than the "download and
install" used from within Firefox.
