Hi Michael,

I'm facing similar issues with my own extensions and I think I've
tracked it down to a setting in the extension's manifest. Out of my
three extensions, the only one that installs in IceCat from
addons.mozilla.org has this in its manifest:

"browser_specific_settings": {
  "gecko": {
    "id": "...",
    "strict_min_version": "50.0"

The other two don't have the ID or minimum version set in their manifest
and they fail to install from addons.mozilla.org.

I downloaded the XPIs for the extensions you listed and none of them
seem to have this settings section either in their manifest.

This guy here describes how one could download the extension's XPI,
modify the manifest, then have Mozilla sign it for self distribution to
finally install it:

That doesn't seem to be a long-term solution though. :/
