This explains how to do what you want to do:

"Including extensions with your distribution of Firefox"

Unfortunately, I didn't get it to work when testing it.

Check the bottom of the page:

It involves placing the extensions in the /firefox/distribution
directory and making changes in the prefs.js of the profile directories.

As I said, I haven't been yet able to get it to work.
