If resolved, QuickManager can directly use http://database.mozdev.org xmls

If thunderbird included the xmlextras extension, would this then work for you?

I've been promising to add xmlextras for Myk for quite some time. Will that
change address XMLHttpRequest as well? I believe it will.

xmlextras is now a required part of Thunderbird. My weekly builds now include it. 

0.4 will be the first milestone release that includes it.

Marking fixed.
