User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:12.0a1) Gecko/20120127 Firefox/12.0a1 Build ID: 20120127031148 Steps to reproduce: If you install the current version of thunderbird (9.0.1) and then look for lighting in the extension tab, you won't find it. Actual results: Lightning doesn't exists for tb 9.*. Expected results: Lightning 1.1 should be available. This is because the lightning version for tb 9 is the 1.1 and the last one is the 1.2 wich works well only on tb 10+ (https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/thunderbird/addon/lightning/versions/). But tb 10.0 is currently a beta!! It looks like the extension manager doesn't search the last "compatible" version of an extension.
(In reply to Jean Claveau from comment #0) Yes. I checked and it just checks the last released version and compares it with the Thunderbird version. If they are not compatible, the add-on doesn't appear.
