no; *I mean Thunderbird ALWAYS reports the Add-ons being incompatible*. I have several
such reports from users, and had to do a manual reinstall on my dad's PC after
upgrading from an older version of Tb60.
*You can check for updates manually and it doesn't work, even after restarting*. The
only way you can update the Add-ons is by:
1) searching for the addon name
2) clicking teh green [Add to Thunderbird] on the Add-ons description page to force
I guess manual deinstallation / installation from disk will also work.
