Mass Installer allows users to install a bunch of extensions with one single click, if you work at many different places or clean your profile frequently, you’ll be hunting and installing extensions more often than necessary.

Mass Installer tries to simplify this task by providing you with an option to specify a link to a local or online file which contains the list of extensions you want to install, this file may contain the link to the XPI of the add-on, one on each line.

To mass install extensions, open the options of Mass Installer and provide the location of the file, it should then install all the extensions listed in the file.
