This is what we do with a file %PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla
firefox\defaults\pref\firefox-custom.js in Firefox 10ESR:

// Don't disable our bundled extensions in the application directory
// https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Installing_extensions

// This doesn't seem to work without extensions.shownSelectionUI,
// at least for upgrades from 3.6 to 10
// it might be fine for new profiles.
pref("extensions.autoDisableScopes", 11);

// Don't display the disabled extensions dialog
pref("extensions.shownSelectionUI", true);

It might be worth you also joining the Mozilla Enterprise mailing list
for getting information about such areas.
