Detect and report broken add-ons


Starting with Firefox 10, add-ons will be marked as compatible by default.

Any help you can provide will be welcomed in order to find any add-ons that could be broken following the feature's implementation in Firefox 10.

You can help by installing the latest Firefox 10 Beta, installing random add-ons from AMO or using the most popular list here and reporting any issues regarding the add-ons you have installed through the Add-on Compatibility Reporter add-on (see instructions below) or by logging a bug in the Extension Compatibility component of Bugzilla: Link

You can also list any problematic add-ons here (if you haven't already through the ACR or Bugzilla): https://mozqa.etherpad.mozilla.org/DFT

You can also report add-ons that you have found to be working properly after a quick check in the same etherpad.

Thank you for all your help!

Add-on Compatibility Reporter instructions

The Add-on Compatibility Reporter (ACR) is an add-on through which Mozilla can gather data as to add-on compatibility for a particular version.

If you notice that one of your add-ons doesn't seem to be working the same way it did in previous versions of the application or that an add-on triggers a Firefox issue, just open the Add-ons Manager and click Compatibility next to that add-on to send a report to Mozilla.

  • 1. Use a profile with add-ons installed in the latest Firefox 10 Beta. Also install random add-ons from this list ACR list
  • 2. Install ACR version 102.
  • 3. Test the functionality of your add-ons and make sure it does not trigger any unwanted issues in the application.
  • 4. If an add-on does not work, mark it as "does not work" by selecting the "Compatibility" button.
  • 5. Provide any information about the broken add-on in the dialog.

If you find any add-on issue that prevents Firefox from working, you can also log a bug directly in Bugzilla in the Extension Compatibility component of Bugzilla: Link
