Package: enigmail
Version: 2:2.0.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainers,

After installing and removing the official .xpi extension from
enigmail.org, the extension from the ‘enigmail’ Debian package doesn't
show up in Thunderbird.

Steps to reproduce:

0. Close Thunderbird, move ~/.thunderbird to a safe location.
1. Install thunderbird/experimental, uninstall enigmail.
2. Download the enigmail xpi file from enigmail.org, start Thunderbird
   and install it. The extension shows up and works fine.
3. Uninstall the extension from the Thunderbird GUI and close it.
4. Install enigmail/experimental.
5. Start Thunderbird. The extension doesn't show up (not even disabled).

If step 2 is skipped, the enigmail extension from the Debian package
works fine.
