Add-ons Update – Week of 2014/05/09

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 4 weeks to review.
  • 91 nominations in the queue awaiting review.
  • Most updates are being reviewed within 1 week.
  • 62 updates in the queue awaiting review.
  • Most preliminary reviews are being reviewed within 10 days.
  • 73 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 29 Compatibility (Australis!)

This is a big one. The Firefox 29 compatibility update is here, and there are some additional posts explaining some of what’s new:

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


The Add-ons for Australis contest went very well, and we already chose the winners! Expect the announcement on this blog early next week.

    Been waiting for my theme to get reviewed for like 10 days now. How long shall it take?

      There are only a couple of theme reviewers working with us, so theme review times range from “long” to “instantaneous”. I wouldn’t expect it to take more than a week longer. Make sure to ping us back after a week if your theme is still awaiting review.
