I post these updates every 3 weeks to inform add-on developers about the status of the review queues, add-on compatibility, and other happenings in the add-ons world.

The Review Queues

  • Most nominations for full review are taking less than 6 weeks to review.
  • Most updates are being reviewed within 5 weeks.
  • Most preliminary reviews are being reviewed within 3 weeks.

These stats are taken from the last queue report:

  • 142 nominations in the queue awaiting review.
  • 139 updates in the queue awaiting review.
  • 119 preliminary review submissions in the queue awaiting review.

If you’re an add-on developer and would like to see add-ons reviewed faster, please consider joining us. Add-on reviewers get invited to Mozilla events and earn cool gear with their work. Visit our wiki page for more information.

The Add-ons Forum is Back

In the past few days the log in form for the Add-on Forum was completely broken and throwing some errors. This was fixed today, so you should be able to log back in. Let us know if you still have problems getting access.

Firefox 24 Compatibility

The compatibility blog post for Firefox 24 is still pending, but it should be up next week. The compatibility bump for AMO add-ons should follow. In the meantime, if your add-on has binary XPCOM components and you built it using one of the early 24 betas, you’ll want to read this.

As usual we recommend using the Aurora and Beta branches to test your add-ons ahead of time.

Firefox 25 Compatibility

There are some pretty big changes coming up in Firefox 25, so I did an early post on it. Please give it a look. It’s worth pointing out that the Australis release was pushed back, so it won’t be included in 25.
