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.
  • 165 nominations in the queue awaiting review.
  • Most updates are being reviewed within 3 weeks.
  • 96 updates in the queue awaiting review.
  • Most preliminary reviews are being reviewed within 3 weeks.
  • 136 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.

Firefox 29 Compatibility

      The SDK is released with Firefox now, and I don’t know about the schedule for specific APIs. You can ask here.
