I have created a xpcom firefox plugin it is working fine if i copy manually the directory to extension folder and restarts firefox.[it is asking for to allow the permission and works fine].
 
but if I zip's and renamed it as .xpi and upload in server to download onclick.
 
Firefox is downloading the xpi file in extension but not uncomcressing the plugin.
as a result the xpcom dll the not detecting by firefox.
 
but if I go and manually unzip inside extension and restarts firefox its running fine.
 
SO what I thought the main problem is no exe or dll can run from inside a zip file in firefox.
 
So my problem is how to tell firefox that install this plugin by unzipping because it have some binary data.
 
I tried searching rdf file chrome.manifest file document for that but didn't get anything helpful.
 

please help me. :(
