as long as you restart firefox when you make a 'status' change to an
add-on. that is main thing.

on some occasions, firefox or extension will be stubborn and you will have
to start firefox in 'safe-mode', ie, from command line;

  firefox -safe-mode


  Help > Restart in safe-mode

then restart in normal mode to clear problems.

same applies to thunderbird.


peace out.
