FF does very same thing. Since add-on incompatibility doesn't affect a whole FF, it just simply says: "this add-on is incompatible, and will be disabled". It's very same as program saying, it can't be installed.
If I try to install something on Vista or 7, and it is only compatible with XP, don't I just get an error message or code of some sort? Maybe a "Could not finish installation, not compatible with Vista" error?

"this add-on is incompatible, and will be disabled"
So in short, why is version check there? Mozilla should pay up! haha, and make the MR Tech Tool part of Firefox's code, or just eliminate the version check, and then you just get that error code.
Don't programmers always look for ways to shorten code? Try to have a clean code excluding all unnecessary stuff? That's what I've heard, so it seems useless to even have it.

Well, I won't drag it out any further than a simple linear list to explain how I see it.
Current Set Up In Firefox
- Install Add-on
- Checks Version Stamp
- Won't allow add-ons with old version stamp/not up to date stamp even though it would probably work.
Hot Fix With MR Tech Tool
- Install MR Tech Tool
- Disables Version Stamp
- Install any add-on
- Error Message, if it is truelly not compatible, "Not compatible, will be disabled"
The Way it Should be!!
- Install any Add-on
- Error Message if its truly not compatible, "Not compatible, will be disabled"
Do you want me to tie your shoes for you too Broni?
