1) Will installing multiple extensions and restarting once introduce any errors? It is a pain in the neck to restart FF every time.

2) Is there a way to have extensions installed by default in a customized firefox installation? I was able to install PubMed toolbar extension in Mozilla 1.6 by default, but Firefox seems a different stroy.

3) I found an extension "Switch Proxy Tool" <…ox&id=125&vid=187> which is nice for using "privoxy" <> and/or anonymous proxies. In this age (GW) of degrading privacy, wouldn't it be nice if Mozilla Firefox came (default install) with a list of anonymous proxies?
