Yes, that will happen when you try to install the Enigmail XPI in a current (49.0.1) firefox. But: The package format clearly specifies which Mozilla platforms the .XPI is compatible with. I consider it a bug of Firefox not to clarify the platform conformity before checking the presence and validity of the signature. A good error handling would present the user with the following: /++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | Hey, I have detected two problems when trying to install the XPI | (filename): | | 1. It is not compatible with FF xx, but only with TB (version range) | and SM (version range) | | 2. It is not verified (misses an internal signature by $CA). | \++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ That should even fit on a smartphone screen. Ludwig
