Not wanting to hijack this thread but Thunderbird has these problems,
too. Having to writing Emails without GPG encryption due to failing
Enigmail is a real pain.

To break it down to the simple:
As there are only a few extensions packaged and they are mostly very
important ones, what keeps us from blocking Firefox/Thunderbird updates
until extension rpms are up to date, too?

I'd prefer a bit less bleeding edge over breaking crucial packages.
