I did use iceweasel as an example on the page, but i wanted to
demonstrate two variants if possible, and i figured iceape-browser might
be a reasonable example.

i found it curious that iceape (at least version 1.1.17-1, which is what
i tried) doesn't appear to conform to the behavior that Mike Hommey
suggested would be universal for xulapps of looking in
/usr/share/mozilla/extensions/{$APPID}/ for extensions.
