Add-on Compatibility for Firefox 26

7

Firefox 26 will be released on December 10th. Here’s the list of changes that went into this version that can affect add-on compatibility. There is more information available in Firefox 26 for Developers, so you should read that too.

General

XPCOM

Binary

DOM

New!

Please let me know in the comments if there’s anything missing or incorrect on these lists. If your add-on breaks on Firefox 26, I’d like to know.

The automatic compatibility validation and upgrade for add-ons on AMO will happen very soon, so keep an eye on your email if you have an add-on listed on our site with its compatibility set to Firefox 25.

    We should document https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=911951 too.

      Thanks! I doesn’t appear to affect any add-ons, however.

        No, it affects mine. I had to do feature detection in my code.

          Which add-on is it (if it’s public)?

            Understandably, this is probably the only add-on implements an Asian IME, so the bug should break only this add-on.
