    In my ????????.default directory I have a subdirectory named "extensions",
    and inside that there are several subdirectories - one for each extension
    which I installed.

    Extensions that you install will be in the same place.

    You *can* download the *.xpi file and then install it manually
    on two or more computers.

    See http://www.accessfirefox.org/Install_Addon_Manually.php

    A 'real' keyboard (USB) is IMO the most important add-on for a laptop.
    Unfortunately it's not always practical to carry the 'real' USB keyboard
    with the laptop. The USB keyboard generally stays on the desk while the
    laptop travels. (I'm typing this now on the laptop's own keyboard from
    a little café where I've stopped for a bite.)
