Native app / companion app - is it reviewed by Mozilla?


Since Mozilla decided to no longer accept extensions that contain obfuscated code I have been looking for a way to protect my code.

Now I wonder if I could put business critical code in a native app and then let my add on request what it needs from the native app.

That could actually solve my problem.

  • But is protected/obfuscated code allowed in a native app?
  • Are Mozilla reviewing the native app as part of the review process?
  • Are there any plans enforce unobfuscated code in native apps?

I am not doing anything to harm the users. I just have a comercial add on and need some way to protect it.


Remember you can still minify your add-on, just not obfuscate it.
