Hi here,

When trying to install a new theme for Thunderbird by hitting install on the
site it tries to install itself on Firefox Themes instead of Thunderbird and of
course it fails.

Thanks a lot for your great products.

Component: Download Manager → Extension/Theme Manager
Note that the Thunderbird instructions should tell you to download (right-click
and save) and not click install.  An install trigger link will always start the
firefox theme installation dialog.

Even better, Thunderbird extension downloads shouldn't be set up on the server
to trigger installs.
