Most popular themes less popular than expected
I’m surprised that on the first page of most popular themes, it goes all the way down to the 400s. That’s much less users than I would expect. Are Firefox themes becoming less popular in general? Or is the way users are calculated different? Or both? Or neither? Just curious.

That’s a good question, @StoryMaker-Christian-Echidna. We recently upgraded themes to a new technology, and it looks like the upgrade has temporarily affected their user stats. A lot of themes are missing from the “most popular” list.

We’re going to keep our eyes on this for a few days. If the user stats don’t recover in that time, we’ll do some further investigations and hopefully fix the underlying cause.

Thanks for flagging this!


Ah, glad to confirm it’s just an error and happy to hear you’re looking into it.
