Testing Summary

Scope of testing

The testing will be focus on

  • Support the 'add-on signing' requirement that has been added to the AMO Review steps
  • Only signed add-ons can be installed (and therefore enabled) on Firefox
  • Provide a seamless (no discernible difference) experience to users who have an existing unsigned add-on pre-45 when the add-on is updated as a signed version when 45 is released
  • Notify users that an existing, previously un-signed add-on is on their device and is now disabled because the add-on wasn't signed for 45


Testing will be performed on following devices:

  • Phones
    • 4.4 +
    • 5.x
    • 6.0
  • Tablet
    • 4.4 +
    • 5.x
    • 6.0


  • Try to install a signed add-on
  • Verify that non-signed add-ons are blocked
  • Notify user that an existing, previously un-signed add-on is disabled after updating to Firefox 46

User stories

  • As a mobile Firefox user I'm only able to install Mozilla-signed add-ons to Firefox.

Additional Info

  • Add-ons will be signed by Mozilla in order to further protect our users from only being able to install Mozilla-signed add-ons to Firefox, whether this is desktop or mobile.
  • Actual support for signed add-ons is already ready, but is currently switched off. Turning it on is a configuration change which needs to be tracked in order to coordinate with this feature's release.
  • Differentiatior: we are the only browser on Android with Add-ons
