    What I wonder is how a Firefox extension programmer knows where to put the limit version to his extension. I have 78 extensions at this time on Firefox 3.5.4, and most are fixed to 3.5.*, whilst a few hit 3.6.(something), others 3.7.(something), I even have an extension (Ad Muncher Browser Extensions) fit to 4.0 !

    Are programmers to cautious or is there a real argument in choosing a limit for an extension? I believe extensions remain valid accordingly to core modifications of the Firefox build, but perhaps is there more to it? That means the extension programmer must know the latest developments of night builds, is that correct?

    Darn :)
