Doesn't really work. See below...

How many times do you think i've read that and other documents?

The problem is not the length of the document nor that it is too difficult to understand. It appears that i'm once again confirmed in my believe that the FX developers are either too stupid or just don't know what they are doing...

The problem is that entering a key under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions] works just as described in the doc but when you enter the same key under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions] it does NOT work at all. (yes, no typos in the key or path). My guess is that this behavior is related to the fact that "SOFTWARE" is written in caps and not "Software" with just the first letter in caps as it is under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER].
Renaming the key under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE] doesn't work, obviously.

So, any ideas?
