What is the reason why to package (thus spend time and resources) Firefox extensions in the Arch Linux repository ?
Honestly I can see only one good reason: the kiosk case, where everything except internet navigation is inhibited.
(also in this case one can install needed extensions beside Firefox, prior to lock the kiosk...)
Where negative effects of having extensions installed this way are:
- hard job to maintain them (creation/update/issue...)
- not automatically updated by Firefox
- out-to-date version due to frequent update
- only a bunch of extensions are in the repo
What am I missing?
I do not know if other distributions (repositories) have them
