When attempting to download Thunderbird extensions, I'm encountering two
download problems:
1) For World Weather 1.11, when I right-click the "Download Now" link and choose
"Save Link As", the save dialog contains "install.php" as the file to be
downloaded, not "world-weather-1.11-tb.xpi" as it should. The correct file is
downloaded, but the user has to manually change this file name to be correct.
2) For FoxyTunes 1.0, when I right-click the "Download Now" link, "Save Link As"
isn't even an option.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click "Download Now" link on Thurderbird Extension.
2. Select "Save Link As"
3.

Actual Results:  
Save dialog contains wrong file name to be saved, has "install.php" instead of
"world-weather-1.11-tb.xpi".

Expected Results:  
Should have had "world-weather-1.11-tb.xpi" in save dialog.

Patch to add /$filename to URIs

Adds /$filename after install.php to workaround browser bug and get the right
filename in the save as box.

Also fix the inability for thunderbird users to save the files at all. (Remove
InstallTrigger for Thunderbird Extensions/Themes).
