Add-on Compatibility for Firefox 31

5

Firefox 31 will be released on July 22nd. Here’s the list of changes that went into this version that can affect add-on compatibility. There is more information available in Firefox 31 for Developers, so you should read that too.

XPCOM

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 31, I’d like to know.

The automatic compatibility validation and upgrade for add-ons on AMO will happen soon, so keep an eye on your email if you have an add-on listed on our site with its compatibility set to Firefox 30.

    My review for Bluhell firewall was removed. Who removed it? The dev or Mozilla addons site maintainer? It wasn’t spam/hate/advertisement. It was spot on. I even asked how to contact dev and he replied. I already contacted him.

      Reviews can be flagged by any AMO user, including the developer. The AMO Editors are in charge of evaluating flagged reviews and decide whether they should stay or go. If your Bluhell review was mostly focused on reporting a bug, then it’s very likely that’s the reason it was deleted.

    Thanks now I understand why my autocomplete stopped working. I have already replaced all of my code per that MDN article, but I guess I didn’t need to do that.

    This change was about as hard to notice as when the getImageAt function was quietly added.
