The converse would be (and should be - I agree with your post) that the installer for Mozilla would first check to see if you're currently running with an extension that is known NOT to work with the version you're about to download. If there's a known incompatibility, it would let you know, offering you the choice of aborting the install and removing the extension, or continuing anyway.
