The Add-ons manager has different dimensions and a different location when opened during the installation of an extension than when it's opened through Tools -> Add-ons. The issue seems to come from the fact the the URL query value (location.search) is kept in localstore.rdf, which thus distinguishes between extensions.xul and extensions.xul?view=installs. A possible solution would be to use the location hash instead (extensions.xul#installs) or to pass the view variable as an additional parameter (as done for Firefox' Options dialog).
This should be fixed when the patch in bug 342098 lands.
