In Nightly all extensions and themes are flagged as legacy. This should not happen for the ones distributed with SeaMonkey.
Attached patch 1373375-extensionslegacy.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Not so sure if the startup scope should be extended to 15 but some code for directory scans was recently removed from toolkit. TB currently uses 4.

Does the comment match the value, it seems to only describe if it was 4.

Have you tested against different values? Is 4 sufficient?

Should we also include DOMi?

r=me with those addressed.

Unsure. I will need to retest it. A comment from Jorg in the TB bug indicated that 15 is maybe necessary.

> Should we also include DOMi?

It is already in: I put only the extensions with id as the name in the comment for clarification.

I am not sure about langauge packs but Fx do not seem to have them in the pref yet.
4 should be sufficient. But I forgot to include the MOZ_ALLOW_LEGACY_EXTENSIONS build var (which is 1 now but you never know) so asking for review again.
