 I noticed this problem while I was trying to reproduce #18947.  This one
 is caused by some code within the make_add_instruction function in tools
 /update-packaging/common.sh. It has some special handling for unpacked
 extensions that are located under distribution\/extensions. I do not know
 why, but instead of placing simple "add" instructions in the MAR file
 manifest it generates "add-if" instructions, e.g.,

 add-if "Contents/Resources/distribution/extensions/https-everywhere-
 eff at eff.org" "Contents/Resources/distribution/extensions/https-everywhere-
 eff at eff.org/install.rdf"

 Since Contents/Resources/distribution/extensions/https-everywhere-
 eff at eff.org does not exist in 6.0a4 or older releases, none of the files
 under https-everywhere-eff at eff.org/ are added during the update.
