I was trying to install my "Crash me now!" extension on Fennec on Android. It has a binary component, so it uses em:targetPlatform to be specific. I was missing one for Android_arm-eabi-gcc3, so it wouldn't install. However, I didn't get any feedback telling me that it wasn't compatible, it just silently failed to install.
Ted, can you send me a link of where that extension is? I don't see it on AMO :(.

It's not on AMO. I fixed the copy on my server, I'll recreate a broken copy and link it here shortly.
I noticed that without a hashcode, the install trigger seems to fail silently.
I still seem to have an issue with this particular plugin even with a hash code.

There is a secret property here we also need to check. I haven't tested it yet, but we can file a separate issue for your thing Naoki.
