    Arrow Solving Firefox’s add-on compatibility problem

    Solving Firefox’s add-on compatibility problem

    How does this work? The gritty details.

    The problem with incompatible add-ons is that most of them are actually compatible - they just don't know it. Unfortunately, blindly enabling all add-ons will enable some that are really are just incompatible, which will end in something breaking. So we needed a way to detect which add-ons would most likely be affected by incompatible changes to new versions of Firefox.
    Assuming the extensions.strictCompatibility preference is set to false, add-ons will use the new compatible-by-default behavior. However, there are several reasons the Add-ons Manager will revert to using the old method of strict compatibility checking for a given add-on:

    • The add-on author chose to opt-in to strict compatibility checking by adding <em:strictCompatibility>true</em:strictCompatibility> to the add-on's install.rdf
    • The add-on has been tested and determined to not be compatible with that version of Firefox (the Add-ons Manager gets this information from AMO)
    • The add-on uses a binary component
    • The add-on hasn't been updated in an extremely long time (the compatibility data needs to state that it is at least compatible with Firefox 4, or Toolkit 2.0)
    • The add-on declares that is it only compatible with future versions of Firefox (we assume that add-ons are not backwards-compatible)
    [here is the] project to fix it. The end result will be that most add-ons will automatically be compatible with Firefox, starting with (hopefully) Firefox 10.

    Arrow Mozilla makes progress on Firefox silent updates

    Mozilla makes progress on Firefox silent updates
    Computerworld - Mozilla is making progress on adding a silent update mechanism to Firefox, with plans to integrate the new service in Firefox 10 early next year.

    But one of the developers working on the feature cautioned that silent update might slip.
    Akhgari's part of the project is to minimize the amount of time it takes Firefox to launch after downloading an update.
    To do so, he's come up with a way to stage the downloaded update -- essentially an updated copy of Firefox -- in a separate Windows directory, then swap the older edition with the newer one the next time the user starts up Firefox.

    Yeah well I had given up on using Firefox on my android in the foreseeable future but this looks promising.
