Ah, well then, when you create a Firefox (0.9+) XPI that uses the rdf 
extension manager, everything is placed in an extension directory in the 
user's profile. So your extension's chrome folder is located at 
.../XXXX.slt/extensions/{ca8c901f-4605-4b5c-8c15-8d11f6bf875b}/chrome if 
your extension's uuid is ca8c901f-4605-4b5c-8c15-8d11f6bf875b. The jar 
file is all that's in there so your extension could use the folder I 
mentioned as a base, create a sub folder and store the downloaded feed 
content in there.
