Impossible to automatically add an extension FIREFOX-ESR17

Hello everybody,

I have a little problem which I cannot resolve.

Here is the problem :
I have FIREFOX ESR10 in my organisation with an extension "CARIATIDES" in version 6.8.
I have made an MSI Package witch install Firefox ESR 17.0.9 with the new version of the Extension (CARIATIDES7.1).
The install uncompressed xpi files in the folder : C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Extensions\

I have set the good prefs value in mozilla.cfg to activate the extension :
pref("extensions.autoDisableScopes", 0);
pref("extensions.enabledScopes", 15);

When I start Firefox, the extension is still in version 6.8.
To install the new version of the extension, I need to start Firefox, manually uninstall the 6.8 version on the menu and restart.

Here is a link to download these extensions (no dammage for your installation, you can try it).

Have you got an idea or a solution ?
I tried to delete the files in the profiles but don't find a script wich run with wildcards to delete in all profiles like : %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profile\*\Extensions\

Thanks for your response !!!
