Updating Extensions for 1.5..."New" Extension Manager??

Well, I've been having a lot of problems getting my extension to work with Thunderbird 1.5--this probably applies to the beta of Firefox, as well.

Although this won't cause errors when you try to install, your .xpi file is going to need these changes:

1) chrome.manifest file. This replaces contents.rdf--you don't need contents.rdf files in subfolders now, either. A good place to go is the Mozillazine article. Look at the file hierarchy for how to set up your .xpi.

Ok, not that bad. But what the heck is the "New Extension Manager"?? The Mozillazine article made this really confusing for me.

So go here.
