A note on add-on stats this week: Firefox 3.5 edition

In the days after Firefox 3’s release last year, I made a blog post titled “A note on add-on stats this week” that explained why active daily user statistics would be inflated more than usual.

With the release of Firefox 3.5 today, the same inflation will be present for the rest of this week, so please don’t be alarmed by a large spike in the reported active installations of your add-ons.

Hopefully by the release of Firefox.next, we will have fixed the bug that will allow us to get rid of update ping inflation entirely.
