Can't download self-published add-on

I’ve uploaded the first alpha version of my self-distributed Add-on for signing, but I can’t figure out how to download the signed file.

I am, in fact, logged in:

It “succeeded” at all the “tests” it was given, yet I can’t find the place to download the signed XPI.

Where should I navigate to for this?

Thanks.

Hi @ishygddt_xyz, you should be getting an email with a link to the download URL for your extension.

In the meantime, go ahead and click on the name of your extension. On the next page, you should see a link on the left side bar for “Upload new version | View all.” Click view all and that should tale you to the page where you can download the signed .xpi file.

@caitmuenster Thanks for the suggestion!

The link in my e-mail, as well as the UI elements you directed me to, both yield the following page:

Within this page, I do not, however, see the blue Download button which I believe should be there:

Oh interesting – I need to look into the Download button issue closer.

On the “All versions” page, right click the name of the current version (Version 0.0.1) to save the file.

er– that doesn’t quite work; I get an HTML file that way.

HOWEVER, it did lead me to discover the solution: clicking through on the version name yields a link to a downloadable copy of the file!

Awesome! :tada: Sorry for the bad directions – but I’m glad you found the correct solution!

The outstanding issue here is that this didn’t appear to be documented anywhere.

I need to look into the Download button issue closer.

I challenge the site admins to a race to the top of Google for “amo download self-published add-on”? This thread vs official documentation :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Did you ever get the email from AMO after your extension was signed?

Yes, I did—

That was partly why I was so confused: the UI seemed to me as if I were awaiting a signing, but I arrived at it from an email notifying me it had been signed.
