Add-ons Update – Week of 2014/03/26

I post these updates every 3 weeks to inform add-on developers about the status of the review queues, add-on compatibility, and other happenings in the add-ons world.

The Review Queues

  • Most nominations for full review are taking less than 2 weeks to review.
  • 77 nominations in the queue awaiting review.
  • Most updates are being reviewed within 10 days.
  • 65 updates in the queue awaiting review.
  • Most preliminary reviews are being reviewed within 1 week.
  • 83 preliminary review submissions in the queue awaiting review.

If you’re an add-on developer and would like to see add-ons reviewed faster, please consider joining us. Add-on reviewers get invited to Mozilla events and earn cool gear with their work. Visit our wiki page for more information.

Firefox 28 Compatibility

The add-on compatibility update for Firefox 28 is up, and the compatibility bump for AMO add-ons was run.

Firefox 29 Compatibility (Australis!)

This is a big one. The add-on compatibility update post is still pending, but we already have a few posts explaining some of what’s new:

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

Finally, we’re running a contest! If you’re an extension or complete theme developer, we have 3 categories you can compete in to win a Firefox OS phone and other goodies. Please visit the contest page for more information.

    Would it be possible to post statistics on addons that are awaiting a second look after the reviewer requested more information? After my extension fell into this situation (minification), I sent in the requested information but got no response. Perhaps a total would reassure me that I’m not alone. 🙂

      When an add-on requires admin approval, like in your case, the waiting time can increase significantly. If you sent the sources to us, we won’t miss them and will take care of your add-on eventually.

      You’re certainly not alone. I don’t have any stats for this type of review, but generally there are about a dozen add-ons awaiting admin approval.
