New workflow for updating users with incompatible add-ons

Owner: Rob, Chris

  • Chris met with Limi and updated the wiki page with revised specs
  • Limi will follow-up with UX specs shortly
  • Once we move to add-ons default to compatible, the majority of incompatible add-ons will be ones with binary components
  • Add-ons which are incompatible and the user decides to move forward with the update, we will only disable
  • "not now" should suppress the dialog for X days, and not til the next Firefox update
QA (Ioana Budnar)
  • Complete:
  • To Do:
    • Continue to revise test plan as feature develops
  • Questions (answers above):
    • Are the binary add-ons the only ones that should be listed in the prompt about unsupported add-ons?
    • When the user chooses to continue with the update and ignore the incompatible add-ons, are those add-ons simply disabled, or are they removed from Firefox?
    • Does "not now" suppress the dialog until the next add-on update, next Firefox update, next day, or download the update in the background?
