Add-on is missing bootstrap method install - beta version on trying to sync


(Undflybir) #1

I published a beta version of my add-on and was trying to test syncing but got the following errors to the browser console (in the FF profile to be synced -> the one that did not have the add-on installed):

Is this because of the version being a beta version? What can I do to fix it in order to test the syncing functionality?

I assume <addon-id> is not your extension? Also, to test syncing you’d usually need the extension installed on both sides…

<addon-id> i used as a placeholder - it’s the ID of my add-on to test

I try it again with the addon installed on both sides - thought they get installed automatically because this seems the case for some addons

Yes, if it’s a publicly listed extension on AMO they will get installed automatically. But it seems to try to install an ancient version of your extension.

Nice, it works now (syncing between different devices - not 2 profiles on same device though)

Thanks a lot:slight_smile:
