9 years ago
The drop-down list at the top-left corner of statistics of each add-on shows:
> Summary
> Downloads
>   Download Source
> Active Daily Users
>   Add-on Version
>   Application
>   Add-on Status
>   Locale
>   Operating System
This suggests that “Add-on Version” and other items are breakdowns of “Active Daily Users.”

However, Active Daily Users and Add-on Version show completely different numbers in the graph and the table when grouped by week.  The numbers shown in Add-on Version are roughly 7 times larger than the number shown in Active Daily Users.  This contradicts a user’s assumption that “Add-on Version” is a breakdown stats of “Active Daily Users.”

I think that this is the problem johnjbarton pointed out at
https://forums.addons.mozilla.org/viewtopic.php?p=1977#p1977,
but even if it is not, the behavior which I am describing here is confusing and should be changed if possible.
stats are being overhauled right now. http://people.mozilla.org/~chowse/drop/statistics_dashboard/v6/

New stats pages are coming shortly and they are using highcharts.
