Useful Information for AMO Editors

Reviewer Guide

The AMO Reviewer Guide is a comprehensive guide to add-on reviews. People interested in becoming add-on reviewers should read it to get an idea of what reviewing add-ons entails.

Review policies

AMO policies are mostly described in the Add-on Polices documents, as well as the AMO Reviewer Guide.


We must work together with the AMO web dev team in order to improve the site for general users, add-on authors, and ourselves. To file a new AMO bug, you can use this Bugzilla link. The link includes the status whiteboard flag we use to distinguish AMO Reviewer-related bugs: [ReviewTeam].

AMO development is slow, with a new version being pushed live every month. Development versions can be tested at https://addons-dev.allizom.org/.
