Binary package hint: mozilla-stumbleupon

Is this bug still valid? According to Stumbleupon extension, it should be compatible with Firefox 1.0 up to 3.0.*.

Sala, This is the same as the other bug #272959 they should be done together atleast that is how i see it. Fix the depends to remove 2.0 add 3.5 and change install.rdf should fix this bug.

update-manager has nothing to do with compatibilty more of a ubufox problem and the changes to .rdf and debian/contol.
I updated ubufox already to fix the incompatiblity bug.
once that hits most of the extensions can than be updated , unless the extensions doesnt support the higher versions than that is upstream code change for each extension
