Our add-on has been published since 2017 and got 4.4 stars. Even though our FF user base is not as large as our Chrome user base, they are important and this add-on is essential to them.
Mozilla displaying “This is not monitored for security through Mozilla’s Recommended Extensions program. Make sure you trust it before installing.” on our add-on. I understand the necessity of recommended add-on promotion by Mozilla in order for keep their user safe.
But this language itself implying that if it isn’t recommended it isn’t safe Which is scaring general users as they are simply not going to next page via “learn more” link. Perhaps Mozilla team should prominently display “Recommended” instead of using negatively impacting wording, which hurting add-on developers like us, with loyal users. Its damaging our brand and image.
Also what are the clear guidelines to be “Recommended”? During new version submission perhaps moderators should say if you submit this you will be flagged or something like checklist?
