Some time ago, I sent some PRs about .xpi extensions, and I'd like to

But I cannot commit them as-is, because after deinstallation they leave
a modified Chrome's registry. It's not possible to keep a copy of the
registry before the installation, because if you install extension A,
then extension B, then deinstall A but keep B, it would not work...

The submitted solution is to rebuild the registry during post-install:
and post-deinstall:.

Unfortunately, this solution does not work, because the mozilla* ports
build their registry before installation, under ${WRKSRC}, during

I have proposed a patch to fix this problem in

What do you think about it?
