I'm sorry, we missed resolving the issue here.

The add-on compatibility now has been changed to compatible-by-default 
(as of quite a few versions ago), though there is a way that we can mark 
specific add-ons as incompatible - I'm asking the question for the 
process by which we can make that happen in future if we need to.

The QuickText add-on has been marked as incompatible with TB 17 - for at 
least all the versions on AMO (I'm not sure if it covers the .3 
available from the author's site or not).

The author also has a beta version out which appears to resolve the 
issue, so hopefully we'll get a fix within a day.
