You can try also to install the extension in Firefox. All applications except Sunbird detect the update 
Component: General → Sunbird Only

There is no em:updateURL set in install.rdf file for this extension. 
Therefore it uses addons.mozilla.org to search for updates.

Until now addons.mozilla.org can't handle Sunbird as you know (Bug 352641).

Are you sure that it works for other non-official applications that are supported by this extension, like Flock or Nvu (or Sunbird)?

In addition the new version of your extension [http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/extensions/cutemenus_-_crystal_svg/cutemenus_-_crystal_svg-1.2.5-fx+fl+ns+nv+sb+tb.xpi]
claims to be not compatible with Sunbird 0.3a2 or 0.3a2+. From install.rdf:

    <em:targetApplication> <!-- Sunbird -->

Therefore update can't find and offer it even if supported by addons.mozilla.org.

Well, I checked the extension update with Thunderbird and Firefox. But maybe you're right. I checked with Sunbird 0.3a1 and it detected the update

I just retested with the extension in question and the update from 'CuteMenus - Crystal SVG 1.5.1' to 'CuteMenus - Crystal SVG 1.5.2' worked without problems using Sunbird 0.3.
