Hey.

I think it would be nice to see the language-xpi of localisized Versions of Fx/TB/Sunbird in the extension-manager.
1. Users can switch easy and without the outdated and incompatible lang-switch-xpi to the english version to report bugs on the app.
2. nightly-channel-upds will work with localisized versions to. (Also betas that havent an translation yet.)
3. Users can test new (alpha) builds with an nightly.xpi-fixed lang-xpi.
4. All installed xpis should be shown in the ext-mgr.
Summary: lang-xpi of localisized Versions from FX/TB/Sunbird should be shown in ext-mgr → lang-xpi of localized Versions from Fx/TB/Sunbird should be shown in ext-mgr
Not an extension manager bug - if the xpi is installed as an extension manager extension it will be displayed.

This should work now with current langpack standards.

Maybe a dup but still a prob!

In my German version there is no ger-xpi shown ...

... stupid users would think that they can't install lang-xpis in the xpi-mgr ...

... or not ???
