Firefox/Features/Easier Add-on Compatibility
|Solution to frequent compatibility updates||Tools implementation underway.||2011-06-01||Justin Scott|
The manual, multi-month add-on compatibility process that has been used in previous releases of Firefox is not feasible for quarterly releases.
Add-ons that don’t use binary components should not require manual compatibility updates with new Firefox releases unless directly affected by a compatibility change. Such breaking compatibility changes should be minimal and well-documented.
The details of this plan are located here. They will be cleaned up and moved to this wiki in April.
Bugs for tools implementation are here.
