[Solved] WebExtensions - Not compatible with Firefox Quantum


#1

I made extension with WebExtensions, but on https://addons.mozilla.org/* it says

Not compatible with Firefox Quantum

Why?

though I can install extension from addons site on Firefox Quantum and it works ok

then what is this message trying to say?

The problem was solved, please don’t post of-topic comments


#2

I’ve got the same problem with my addon:
Streamlink Helper

Can you list all validation errors you got when submitting your extension?

Thanks!

There is no any error…

Only warnings (they always were)

What’s the name of your extension so AMO reviewers can take a look?


#6

I didn’t get any errors or warnings at all.


#7

Same problem with my extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/simple-browsing-schedule/

First appeared about a day ago
(might be an AMO bug somewhere ?)

No Warnings, No Errors

Extract from: manifest.json

“applications”: {
“gecko”: {
“id”: “simplebrowsingschedule @example.org”,
“strict_min_version”: “57.0”
}
}

Thanks for reporting this. I filed an issue and we’ll try to get it fixed ASAP.


#9

All Fixed - thanks very much.


#10

Here as well. Thank you!


#11

yeah, ok now.
if it’s not a secret, what was the reason (mb bug)?


(Caitlin Neiman) #12

It’s probably not a secret, but I’m also not finding too many details in the bug. You might want to leave a comment in the issue on Github for more information. :slight_smile:

I have same issue for Firefox Quantum (version 57) for Multirow bookmark:
https://addons.mozilla.org/vi/firefox/addon/multirow-bookmarks-toolbar/


(Conceiva Mezzmo) #14

I have the same issue with my addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downloadstudio-firefox-integra/


#15

your extension isn’t WebExtensions https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions

you should create a new one (using WebExtensions API)

I guess moderators should close this topic


(Renifos) #16

None of the add ons are compatible any longer! I have switched to Safari for the moment. It doesn’t open with previous tabs any longer either although I have set it in settings. Completly useless!!!


(Aristide Antonas) #17

do we have to go back to previous version? Send to Kindle does not work.


(Rabimba) #18

The User Agent string check to see what browser you were using was wrong. How it was computed previously was…lets just say wrong


(Travis DeYoung) #19

I am having this same issue with the Local Filesystem Links Add-On that is located here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/local-filesystem-links/

My whole organization is currently using this and need it to access files from our Intranet sites.


(Caitlin Neiman) #20

Hi @aristide_antonas – while you can go back to a previous version, we don’t recommend it. Firefox 56 will no longer be receiving critical security updates.

As an alternative to Send to Kindle, would Push To Kindle or Send to Kindle for Mozilla Firefox work for you?
