There is no way an extension can automatically do anything. The installation process deals only with making the application files available to you. Any automated tasks must be done by the user. Having that modified icon in your backup is the standard way of making changes like this in a frugal system.

If the extension is being loaded automatically at boot, there should be no need to do anything special. Your backup restores after the extensions are loaded, so any modifications you make to personal files override those of the extension. If you are loading it manually after booting, though, then you will have issues with custom files.
If you really do want to make changes to the extension, Firefox has the quality that it can be put wherever you want and it will still run fine, so you can copy the firfox directory into your home directory (for example) and make whatever changes you need. After that you don't even need to rebuild the extension if you don't want to...just run the application wherever you put it.
