for installing just right click on the downloaded file and select open with...firefox if it is not there in the list then choose the bottom entry "custom command" in the box type firefox and then it will install immediately...restart firefox to complete the installation.

My guess is he wants it to be integrated natively, ie without the need of an addon. is it planned?

You could submit this on:

http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com

The fact that a plugin is available (my guess) would that it will be rejected and the user will be told to install the addon. This is one of the advantages of modular apps (just as the Linux kernel is modular). You can add and remove functionality to your liking.

Its just a proposal to use the system's default notifications tool instead of its own. I'm not sure its an issue of addon/not addon, it would be better suited in about:config with a line like system.default.notification true/false

Its about desktop integration.

Can you help with this problem?
