Petru, I see you just landed the new AMO URL and title for bug 1544525. Sorry to keep changing the feature requirements, but the AMO team has a new recommended AMO URL:

The URL they had recommended in bug 1544525 sorts the add-ons by "newest first". The new URL above sorts the add-ons by popularity. The "newest first" sort order is not meaningful to users. The popularity sort order will guide users to the most relevant add-ons first.

Andrei, we will want to uplift your AMO URL fix to Fennec 67 Beta, but we need to make sure Petru's AMO patches from bug 1544525 landed on Beta first.
