Steps to reproduce:

Created an auto publisher in addon collector 2.0.2 in FF 7.0.1

Actual results:

I had 58 addons in the extensions tab. 2 of them were not published in my collection as they are not in mozilla addons anymore. But instead of seeing 56 addons in my collection online I saw 60 (3 of them experimental) ! Moreover in the collection tab my autopublisher (the only collection I have there) lists 63 addons (an automatically generated list of my installed addons - 3 of them were having an install option - the experimental ones). The (7 in total) invisible addons are listed on the top of the collection - I found no docs on the ordering of addons there. I have installed Massive extender also - dunno if relevant. 
Basically I am not only interested in a fix but also to know where collector gathers its info from (the extension folder indeed has 58 files/dirs in it - not sure if they are the ones in my extension tab as they mostly have non human readable names but chances are they are)

Expected results:

See 56 addons in my online collection and 56 in my collections > an automatically generated list of my installed addons tab.
Not having not installed addons figure there.
Understand why they were there - maybe there are some leftover files in my profile (an old geeky profile at that)

Also it completely escapes me how come the online version and the version listed in my collections > an automatically generated list of my installed addons tab differ.

2.1 has been released today and it will be the final version of the Collector in its current form (A simple add-on just to load the Collections AMO page might replace it). This bug didn't make it in. So marking this as WONTFIX.
