The compatibility blog post for Firefox 50 is up, and the bulk validation was run recently. The compatibility blog post for Firefox 51 has published yesterday. It’s worth pointing out that the Firefox 50 cycle will be twice as long, so 51 won’t be released until January 24th, 2017.

Multiprocess Firefox is now enabled for users without add-ons, and add-ons will be gradually phased in, so make sure you’ve tested your add-on and either use WebExtensions or set the multiprocess compatible flag in your add-on manifest.

As always, we recommend that you test your add-ons on Beta and Firefox Developer Edition to make sure that they continue to work correctly. End users can install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter to identify and report any add-ons that aren’t working anymore.


We would like to thank Atique Ahmed Ziad, Surya Prashanth, freaktechnik, shubheksha, bjdixon, zombie, berraknil, Krizzu, rackstar17, paenglab, and Trishul Goel (long list!) for their recent contributions to the add-ons world. You can read more about their work in our recognition page.

    Just want to say how grateful I am for the work the Add-Ons team has been doing! Not an easy task by far, and yet Firefox has come around full-tilt to continue battling the proprietary browsers.
    I salute y’all!

          You can create a theme with whatever content you want as long as you install it locally using Personas Plus. If you want to list the theme on our site, there are stricter rules, which are listed here. While some level of nudity is permitted, it’s fairly limited (think PG-13).

    Well, sadly my addon was reviewed and is considered “incomplete”, but I haven’t received a mail nor I can access any site containing details as of why it has been disabled…

      Please send an email to amo-admins AT mozilla DOT org explaining the situation. It sounds like your submission was rejected, and in that case you should have received an email from us with the details of the rejection.
