First Firefox Extension

Thought of trying out some thing new and I wrote the "Hello World" Firefox extension. Precise instructions and explanation are available at
The profile folder mentioned in the instructions is ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/extensions

After creating the id file in extensions folder when you restart you firefox, the addon window notifies that a new add on has been added.

You can uninstall your extension like any other extension. Uninstalling removes the id file from the extensions folder.

EDIT: An excellent tutorial here -
