[LibX] LibX and Firefox 5

Built after June 22 can be installed in FF5-7
Made live after June 30 are recognized as compatible when a user upgrades.
I upped the maxVersion in install.rdf, which determines whether a .xpi
is compatible, on June 22.
I upped the maxVersion in update.rdf, which is what the browser checks
to see if a compatible update is available, on June 30.
install.rdf gets embedded in your .xpi when you rebuild.
update.rdf is updated when you 'make live'.
Sorry this is so complicated.
