Check if a firefox addon is installed or not

While trying to check if one of my firefox add-on is installed or not, I found that, Chrome resources can no longer be referenced from within <img>, <script>, or other elements contained in, or added to, content that was loaded from an untrusted source. This restriction applies to both elements defined by the untrusted source and to elements added by trusted extensions.

Before firefox 3 we were able to check if a firefox add-on is installed or not as following.
using an image tag to load an image in the firefox add-on.
Once loaded trigger the onload event to verify the add-on is loaded.
For example,
< img src=”chrome://youraddonname/content/skin/images/anyimagefilename” width=”0″ height=”0″ onload=”function call here()” style=”visibility:hidden” >;

But this stopped working after firefox 3 and later versions due to security restrictions.
And the extensions won’t interact with the web page in any way.
