  I tried this route also, since the mozilla downloader/installer is so
bad. It turns out that mozilla recognises a .xpi file and executes it, so
if one pulls this down by whatever means and then gives it to mozilla
as a file URL, it unpacks it.

  Unfortunately neither that, nor the method below which I just tried,
work for me, but I'm running my own builds from CVS, not 0.7.
