Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1
Build ID: 20111220165912

Steps to reproduce:

Having addon "Save Complete 1.0.1" + "RealPlayer Record Plugin 15.0.0" installed globally, the first was enabled by help of Addon compatibility reporter.
Update FF to version 10.


Actual results:

Both addons were disabled after restart, and the Enable button was no more existent.
Even filing "Addon works correctly" doesn't bring back the Enable button.


Expected results:

Incompatible enabled addons should stay enabled.
At least, Enable button should stay functional, most notably for "RealPlayer Record Plugin 15.0.0", as it is exclusively installable globally.
