Oooh  - I didn't see there was a menu "by Add-on Status" - I guess it would have been 
helpful to completely hide the "disabled" data in the other graphs. There is really no 
good way to get the users back (a disabled Add-on cannot notify you about it's new 
features to convince you to enable it again, so it pretty much useless for my metrics) :-)

E.g. with quickFilters - one interesting thing is that the "userEnabled" number 
(14,846) is pretty close to the number of the latest Add-on (14,168) which indicates 
that a large portion of the "disabled" user base may not have updated their Add-ons in 
a while for one reason or another.

Number of Thunderbird 52.9 users is at /842/, and only /189 /users Tb 45.8 so that I 
hope is an encouraging ratio.
