The implementation does currently only allow a single package to be installed, quoting from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AptFirefoxFileHandler:
"""
The current set of commands is limited on purpose. Actions like "update", "upgrade", "dist-upgrade", "remove" look not useful or plain dangerous. We may expand the syntax later to support multiple packages separated by ",".

I would just like to add my support for this feature request. There's a brainstorm page here as well: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/134

Thanks for your bugreport.

This is possible with the current apturl in hardy now, but it will launch a separate window for each package.

I guess this can be closed then?
