*Example for workaround for "Grammar Checker" (can also apply to other 
add-ons)*

**

Manually update your add-on's max version from "60.0" to "60.*"

1. Download "Grammar Checker"
https://addons.thunderbird.net/thunderbird/downloads/latest/grammar-checker/addon-14781-latest.xpi?src=search

2. Rename the download from "grammar_checker-0.8.1-tb.xpi" to 
"grammar_checker-0.8.1-tb.zip"

3. Open "grammar_checker-0.8.1-tb.zip"

4. Open "install.rdf" with a Text Editor"

5. Change the line:

<em:maxVersion>60.0</em:maxVersion>

to:

<em:maxVersion>60.*</em:maxVersion>

6. Save and close "install.rdf"

7. Save and close "grammar_checker-0.8.1-tb.zip"

8. Rename file from "grammar_checker-0.8.1-tb.zip" to 
"grammar_checker-0.8.1-tb.xpi"

9. Open Thunderbird

10. Open Add-ons Manager

11. Click on the "Tools for all add-ons" button (located just to the 
left of "Seach on addons.thunderbird.net" box.

12. Select "Install Add-on From File..."

13. Select "grammar_checker-0.8.1-tb.xpi"

14. Select "Install Now"

15. Select "Restart Now"

Should be working.
