I recently developed an add-on for Firefox. After it gained over 500 users within just a few months I found out that I could now send a mail to Firefox, requesting my plugin to be featured, which I quickly did.
But now, a few weeks later, I looked into my Firefox add-on stats and saw that the downloads dropped drastically from the day I send my mail (see image below)
and my daily users also stopped growing - even shrinking slowly (see image below).
Could it be that Mozilla/the Firefox add-on store started boycotting my add-on? Is this how the Mozilla team deals with add-ons that they don’t want to feature?
I didn’t think that Mozilla wouldn’t like my add-on as it isn’t anything shady - it helps users gain privacy.
PS: I didn’t want to add the name of the add-on to this post as I don’t want to advertise it in this post. If any member of the Mozilla team wants to know the name of the add-on to look into it, I can provide it.
