Add-ons Default To Compatible Blair McBride Complete Virgil Dicu Signed Off

Summary

  • As majority of add-ons work from one version to the next without the need for developer maintenance, Firefox will mark addons compatible with new versions of Firefox by default, except for the following:
    • All binary add-ons
    • All strict incompatible add-ons
    • All blacklisted add-ons
  • The Feature is planned for Firefox 10.

The feature is enabled by default in Firefox 10. The feature can be disabled by setting the "extensions.strictCompatibility" preference to true in about:config.

Reference

  • Feature wiki page - Link

Non-Goals

  • Will not be tested:
    • Add-ons individual functionality after being enabled to default.

Use Cases to Test

  • An add-on can have different states in a Firefox version: compatible-incompatible, enabled/disabled, pending restart, updated/in need of update.
  • User installs several types of add-ons on a Firefox version with one or more of the above mentioned states
  • When upgrading to a new version, Firefox will automatically set his add-ons to compatible with the new Firefox version, unless the installed add-ons are binary, blacklisted or strictly set to incompatible with the Firefox version.

Edge cases

  • Upgrade and verify that installed third party and restartless add-ons are default to compatible or incompatible if binary/blacklisted/strictCompatibility listed
  • Upgrade and check behavior for add-ons installed on older Firefox versions (<Firefox 7)
  • Upgrade from Firefox4 successively to Firefox 5,6,7,8,9 and 10 and verify that all add-ons are listed as expected.
