Beta add-on support on ATN - asking for a reminder

Dear Eyal Rozenberg,

I believe it was removed by Firefox / Mozilla core. Not sure if can have it back, but 
I would find it very useful, seeing that I have my first ADd-on in late beta stages:

As an aside - I am also afraid that the update mechanism within Tb68 doesn't work with 
*SmartTemplate4* - I have seen a lot of instances where the update wasn't picked up 
(even with "force update") and I had to manually "install over". I am even thinking of 
migrating it under a completely new name "*SmartTemplates*" because I do not like the 
current one.
