 Replying to [comment:3 gk]:
 > If I understand your fixup correctly then what is does is basically
 cutting out an optimization which makes sure that the extension(s) get
 added anyway (and this is platform-agnostic). Looks good to me in this


 > I am fine with letting the full update occur. What do we do in the mean
 time, though? Adding that to the known issues on our blog? Making sure all
 users updating now are getting only the full update?

 The full MAR file has the same problem, so removing the incremental MARs
 is not a fix.
 For the next release, we need to make sure we ship a new HTTPS-E extension
 (e.g., version 5.1.7 assuming it exists) or we need to omit the
 incremental MARs.

 My recommendation for 6.0a5 is to add this to the known issues list on the
 blog and tell people to install HTTPS-E 5.1.6 from https://www.eff.org
 /https-everywhere (we don't want them to install the one from
 addons.mozilla.org since the extension ID is different).
