If someone wants to test a SDK-based add-on, let's say and hasn't yet the Add-on Builder Helper add-on (ABH) installed, a notification/popup tells the user to install it. But after installing, clicking the Test button still yields complains about ABH not being installed. A reload of the page fixes this.
I believe best would be if ABH would try to reload the page after being installed.
If some changes were added and unsaved - onbeforeunload should pop up.
If that is the case, it would help to cc Alex on this bug as he is maintaining ABH.

That should be it. Just use brand new "existing" PageMod flag in order to get mozFlighdeck object injected in already opened tabs.

We need patch from bug 733582 in order to refactor addon builder helper to work with current SDK master.
Then we are able to use new PageMod flags introduced in this patch and fix this bug.
So please review bug 733582's patch first.

We will have to wait for first 1.11 SDK beta to build ABH as we rely on new page-mod attribute to be due in this release.
Is this done then? We're on SDK 1.12
We talked multiples times about spinning an updated version of ABH. But given the version currently available on AMO, It doesn't seems to have been done!

Jeff, Can you do that ?

Piotr, it may help, if you have AMO credentials for this addon, to register me or Jeff as developer. So that we can update it without having to bug Daniel.
Adding Erik to the cc - I believe he has the AMO juice to update the add-on.
