Description

7 years ago
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.3a5pre) Gecko/20100426 Minefield/3.7a5pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

While going through some test scenarios for extensions and themes (installing, updating, and others) I feel a bit less informed about which version of the add-on is installed. We only show the version number inside the details pane but not in the list pane for extensions and themes. That always forces the user to open the details pane to check for the extension/theme version.

I think the version number is important enough that we should also show it in the list view. CC'ing Jennifer to that bug so we can get feedback from UX.
Agreed - I've been meaning to bring this up for awhile. And actually using it, it drives me nuts not knowing what version of an addon I have installed.

Yes - we should be showing both after the add-on/plugin title.

I assume it'd show as a slightly smaller font-size.

So do I, but Mossop disagrees, see bug 1175324 comment #2 (setting WONTFIX). Happily there exists an extension to add back all version numbers to the list view: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/amversionnumber/

I am seeing this in this version:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 ID:20151029151421 CSet: e2f9a0ed50bc

Yeah, it was added in this bug to Fx 4.0b2pre and later removed again; and AFAIK it is not coming back but there is an extension for it, see comment #12.
