Mario I understand that, but without elevating the installer I can't
install to /usr/lib anyway so it's obvious the addon is being installed
to my profile.default/extensions subdirectory.

The bug is simply that the Ubuntu Supported addons can not be removed
through the normal means, which is contrary to normal Firefox operation
on other platforms, when bringing new users to Ubuntu it's nice to be
able to tell them that everything is the same in Firefox after wrestling
them away from Internet Explorer. There should be a single
install/remove method in Firefox, which Mozilla have provided but it was
disabled in the supported XPI's.
