What is Version Icon?

Version Icon is a Firefox add-on that displays the browser's version as an icon. It is compatible with Firefox 51+ and also supports Firefox 55+ for Android. The add-on intentionally reflects a different version number from the about:support page's one for Firefox beta releases. Try the new release Tab Counter Icon, which shows the number of open tabs as an icon.

Plz update to make it possible to display 101.01 version of Firefox

A must-have add-on for FF nerds

Great addon! It would be interesting if a click on the version icon could display the Firefox's Help > About Firefox window. Would be great if the same addon would exists for Thunderbird.
