Dear Mark,

thank you for this very detailled answer. Somehow the LibreJS icon is
not shown in my case an when I go to the Extensions/Add-On-Manager page
in LibreJS it say's:

> LibreJS/USPS compatibility
> LibreJS compatible shipping calculator. The Icon shwon on the Manager-page is also not the right
one. Where does that come from? 

Something must have gone wrong here. Right?
