This is an important point in my opinion: how do you avoid that numerous
add-on on AMO are not compatible with latest release of Thunderbird and
that you should use a link given in comment to find someone you have
release an updated version.
Good example here:
This is totally unsecure as user can be pointed to any bad add-on!

There should be some way to avoid this kind of situation.
