[LibX] globally installing libX for FireFox on Windows 7

I'm not sure. Perhaps in Windows 7 the user executing LibX doesn't
have write access to the extension folder?

LibX creates a folder 'libx' in the profile in which it's installed
(if it is installed in a profile!) in which it maintains cues, etc.

If it's installed globally, this profile directory would, presumably,
map to some other directory to which the user running Firefox would
then need write access to.
