Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.3a6pre) Gecko/20100618 Lightning/1.1a1pre SeaMonkey/2.1a2pre - Build ID: 20100618022104

At the moment, the extensions list which is part of the about:support page is not sorted on any criterion I can identify. It would be nice to have clickable column headers (name / enabled? / ID / maybe an additional "Last updated" column), or failing that, a list sorted by name.

I'm not sure which Product/Component is right for this bug. I'm reporting it under Core because it affects Firefox and SeaMonkey (and, if used as Mail Start Page, Thunderbird) the same way.

Toolkit is where about:support lives -> Toolkit:General

I'm also adding this to the meta bug for improving about:support info, as this list could be made easier to read by just sorting by enabled state then alphabetically.

Clicking column headers to sort might be nice, but because users are copying the info to paste in a support forum we probably want it to stay consistent. I'm not sure whether I'd want that feature or not.

The Extensions have A-Z Order distinguished by enabled and disabled State => WFM?
