Fixed checksums for the newly-reviewed version.

Apparently they taking a couple days now to review on general principle? I guess that isn't *too* bad... And my test for full validation is broken. :(

@Eschwartz: 5.2.5 doesn't validate with firefox 49

Updated. :)

AMO finally let it pass full review. At one point they were extremely fast, but it took a lot longer this time, so I was worrying that they might have regressed to never-never land again... but all is well.

New checksum

Pushed an update to 5.2.1

Also, a bit of templated code which should detect when an extension does not have signing data sufficient for Firefox to approve of, and add a warning and install script.
Which should help maintainers easily determine if their extensions have issues, and conditionally give the warning to end-users, not that I anticipate the need. Mozilla has been good about reviewing HTTPS Everywhere these days.

Since I did try to make this as generic a template as possible...

Not sure why it was updated to 5.1.3 a month early, but updated now.
Removed the post-install warning, and hopefully this is a good omen for the future.

The verified version is now up on AMO.

Updated, with the latest still-unreviewed version, and a post-install warning.

@Eschwartz: thanks for the help, done!

I will not use a custom firefox, I don't want to recompile it :)
For the moment, I've set xpinstall.signatures.required to false in about:config.

If we can't find a solution before the release of firefox 44, I will stop managing my extension via pacman...

I'd be happy to co-maintain it, help keep an eye on the latest release and check when it passes AMO review...

But I'm thinking people with extensions, particularly the troublesome ones, may wish in the long term to use an AUR-built Firefox with this patch:
