    There are 2 Ubuntu user accounts.

    I have about 6-7 Firefox profiles in my Ubuntu user account.

    I want to install an extension into all of them but not into Firefox profiles of the other Ubuntu user account.

    How do I?

    Start Firefox with every profile and install the extension...

    firefox -P 
    or
    firefox -ProfileManager

    I'm building a "generic configuration script" for our ubuntu installations.

    Coming to firefox there are some cool extensions I wish everyone to have (firebug, elasticfox-ec2tag and co...).

    How can I have these extensions installed automatically into the firefox profile?

    See this page, in particular:

    If you want to do a silent administrative install that immediately makes the extension available to limited users, you need to uncompress the .xpi file yourself (as a ZIP file) to an appropriately named (extension's ID) folder. On Linux/Unix platforms you can use a helper script to determine extension IDs in an automated fashion.
