 A little digging reveals that Mozilla sends an XML response that looks
 like this:
 <?xml version="1.0"?>
     <update type="minor" unsupported="true"

 The `unsupported="true"` triggers the display of a special panel within
 the about dialog. See https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-
 esr52/source/browser/base/content/aboutDialog-appUpdater.js#261 (or search
 that file for `unsupported`).

 We would need to modify the code to look for `minSupportedOSVersion`
