What use would such a feature be?
I'm of the opinion that knowing what is installed on your computer and when is always a good thing. It could also be helpful in identifying what and when a specific version of an extension is broken.
I have to agree with Steve, I'm not sure I see the value in this. Typically breakages occur in the following situations: 1. Firefox updates that change core API or code meaning that the extension has to be rewritten or changed to accommodate the new version. 2. Extension updates that don't account for cross-platform differences or special circumstances. In the first case, the solution is almost always "get the latest version", which will solve most cases. The previous history is not relevent to this problem. In the second case, the problem is newly introduced and a version history isn't really required to identify the offending update. Since most extensions stick to specific tasks, users will be able to identify if a common activity worked in the previous version without such data.
This has nothing to do with Software Update. It either belongs in EM or in Prefs, but more work will be required in EM... Rob, what do you think?
Oops, I get cc'd on email@example.com so I didn't see this. I think the value to pain ratio for this is too high on the pain side.
