Add-ons Update – 2017/02

Here’s the state of the add-ons world this month.

If you haven’t read Add-ons in 2017, I suggest that you do. It lays out the high-level plan for add-ons this year.

The Review Queues

In the past month, 1,670 listed add-on submissions were reviewed:

  • 1148 (69%) were reviewed in fewer than 5 days.
  • 106 (6%) were reviewed between 5 and 10 days.
  • 416 (25%) were reviewed after more than 10 days.

There are 467 listed add-ons awaiting review.

Compatibility

The blog post for 52 is up and the bulk validation was already run. Firefox 53 is coming up.

Multiprocess Firefox is enabled for some users, and will be deployed for all users very soon. 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.
