    I just repacked my addon and tried to upload to AMO, and got a validation error about minVersion. Turns out minVersion in install.rdf was set to ’7′ by SDK 1.2, which is not allowed. Shouldn’t the minVersion be 4.0?

    Please fix it for SDK 1.2

    Why don’t you fix the theme page on the Amo Instead on making posts about Jetpack or the Add-ons SDK? It’s broken again.

      Thanks for your comment. How exactly is the theme page broken? Do you mean this page?

      https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/

    Yes that page. I wrote about this a few days ago here https://forums.mozilla.org/addons/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4092 and got a reply that the page will be changed to Most users. Amo developers did that and said that it’s a bug but now when I click on themes the featured page opens.

    This kills theme development because now people are going to download these themes. People usually download the first thing they see. What about other themes?

    1. Jeff Griffiths Author

      I dropped by #AMO and discussed this with the devs there; there was a problem where the fix to make themes display the most popular by default was squashed by a later change. I expect they will have this fix re-re fixed soon. Thanks for pointing this out!

    Why are there only 16 themes on a page? I have so many questions and I’m 95% sure that my post or other complaints won’t change a thing. I’d be nice to have the old design back!
