Also OT and I'll stop with this.

There is a six week release cycle for Thunderbird and Firefox. The
soon to be released TBird 10.0 spent six weeks as a daily (daily
updates), six weeks as an Aurora (feature freeze with bug fixes) when
needed, six weeks as a beta (complete freeze with 'must fix bug
fixes), before release. 18 weeks in the system.

There is also the Addon Compatibility Reporter that will let you run
the extension compatible report or not and report that the extensions
still works, or does not as expected, or not at all.

It seems to me that the extension developers, if they carried to do
so, have plenty of time.

And I stop here as I said above.
