Description:

Fore more info, see bug 611534.

For FF 3.6.*, the add-on detail page correctly serves a compatible version but all the add-on's details are incorrect.

STR:
1. Using FF 3.6.*, load https://addons.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bug-611534/
2. Notice that add-on version is '3.0' and compatibility range is 'Firefox 4.0b12- 4.0.*'

expected behavior:
For 3.6 users, we show details corresponding to the compatible version(in this case, 2.0)

Actual behavior:
We serve 2.0 for FF 3.6.* users but show details for 3.0
Target Milestone: 6.0.0 → 6.0.3

This is because we are showing the install button for the backup version. So the version shown and the backup don't match.

I would recommend we show a message below the button, something like: "This will install an older version of the addon because of the version of Firefox that you are using." (please improve). So that they know it's a different version.

The other option is to switch everything around to match the backup version and that seems icky.
our install experience is so complex :(

If it's too hard to update with the correct details, I'd prefer to just hide the incorrect bits instead of displaying a message.

I'm changing the version number to the right of the title, the works with and the updated date when we show the backup button.
