Firefox 26 Compatibility

The blog post was published and the accompanying compatibility bump for AMO add-ons was done shortly thereafter. Apologies for the delays.

As usual we recommend using the Aurora and Beta branches to test your add-ons ahead of time.

Firefox 27 Compatibility

Coming up…


Australis, the new Firefox theme, is currently starting its second cycle on Nightly. I just posted the first installment in a series of posts about it. Check it out: Part 1 – Toolbars.

It’s very important that you test your add-on as soon as you can and figure out if there’s anything you need to do to make it compatible, or if you discover any bugs in the new theme. The blog post has instructions on how to report bugs for it effectively.

    Shortly before a new Firefox version was out, I used to get an email about automatic compatibility tests that were done on my addon. For the newest version, 26, I didn’t get this. So was this discontinued?

      No, it’s still happening. It depends on the compatibility that your add-on has set. We only notify you about Firefox X if your add-on has a maxVersion set to Firefox X-1.
