Even if those extensions help for security. Installing them is not without consequences. Most of them are NOT signed, which means (combined with the autoupdate feature) it is quite easy to replace them with malicious code.

I think mozilla should make signing mandatory to allow distribution on addons.mozilla.org.

No problem, I can do that.

I will need to charge a small fee for the trouble, but I'm sure no-one will mind.

Signed by the developers themselves at least, it is better than nothing.
