When there is a download or install error, the install progress binding should describe what error occured. Currently, it shows a generic "Download error"/"Install error"/etc message.
Do we already have a wording for all of those errors?
Version: unspecified → Trunk
Not in the current code, no. The old extension manager had wording for some of them, which we can take inspiration from. The current error codes are:

  INSTALLERROR_INVALID_VERSION
  INSTALLERROR_INVALID_GUID
  INSTALLERROR_INCOMPATIBLE_VERSION
  INSTALLERROR_INCOMPATIBLE_PLATFORM
  INSTALLERROR_BLOCKLISTED
  INSTALLERROR_INSECURE_UPDATE
  INSTALLERROR_INVALID_MANIFEST
  INSTALLERROR_RESTRICTED
  INSTALLERROR_SOFTBLOCKED

They will also need tooltips, better explaining them.
