5.2.5 is the latest version, so I unflag the package...

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...
