Well, i have one extension too. Mozilla built a system that checks if extension is 
compatible and then will automatically update version limit for extension. That was also 
done for my extension so i had to do nothing myself and for quite some time there is no 
repacking needed. I would say most add-ons are working w/o problems. But yes there are 
add-ons that don't work. But it was announced weeks ago that Firefox 5 will be released 
today. If you develope add-on you should know it and act accordingly (Mozilla even sends 
reminders for developers!).
