Hey Mark,

You can use any of the following ways:

  1. By using install_addon API of Selenium WebDriver to add Firefox extensions using Python

    The install_addon method of the Selenium WebDriver takes two input arguments – a path to the desired Firefox extension and a Boolean value which indicates whether the installation of the extension is temporary (or not).

  2. By using PyTest to add Firefox extensions using Selenium and Python

    PyTest extends the core Python unittest module with features useful for writing tests—attaching test hooks, gathering and reporting test result data, and providing additional testing utilities such as rule-based skipping and expected failures.

  3. By using pre-loaded Firefox extensions and FirefoxProfile in Selenium WebDriver

    FirefoxProfile is a collection of settings, extensions, and customizations done on top of the Firefox browser. You can create several Firefox profiles to tailor-make the look & feel of the browser as per your preferences.

To deep-dive into each of these methods, please go through the following blog:
