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.
