Our newest addition to the engineering team, Kevin Ngo, added some hover buttons to make it easier for you to install a new theme and also edit themes you’ve authored.

We’ve added some nifty sorting and viewing options for background themes! Due to performance concerns during the migration, we displayed only up to 60 themes on your profile page. Now, we’ve reduced the number to 20, and added a View All button. When you click the View All button on an author’s profile page, you… Continue reading

Personas has officially joined the Themes family on AMO! The renaming is finally complete, and we’d like to thank you for your patience.

Header images need to be 3000 x 200 px and footer images 3000 x 100 px. As a result, loading them slows down Firefox.
