Description

I'm trying to create a new panel for the devtools using the "Restartless template"[1].
I tried to use this address as the extension ID: myyelf+extension-name@gmail.com, but the extension would never appear in the addon manager.
I removed the "+extension-name" part of the email address and it worked.

If it worked, I would be able to create multiple extensions and use the same email with different "+..." parts.

Extension IDs are not email addresses, I don't see any reason to change this
