Question about extension IDs
lists at fnxweb.com

Well, two questions actually, but I rather suspect I can guess the
answer to the second :-/
I have a “legacy” add-on I finally have a little time to investigate
porting (although it appears I have less time than I thought due to the
preferences situation, about which I'll send another post).
It has a UUID as an extension ID. Would the AMO site cope with me
uploading a new version with a new-style ID, or is it fixed? I don't
want to break automatic updates of it.
If I can, do I just upload with a new preferred ID against the old
extension page's “upload new version”?
And the follow-up question: my extension currently supports both
Firefox and Thunderbird. Obviously, if I change it to WebExtensions, I
can't keep the two the same. Is there anything I can do about this?
Say, upload a forked Thunderbird version (that's if there are any
changes in the future) under a new name/UID *but allow existing
Thunderbird users to auto-update to it*?
