A number of add-ons by various authors are marked compatible with Mobile Firefox 0.1 to 2.0a1pre. This appears to be unintentional and wrong. These two examples are by Dietrich and Atul, and I confirmed with Dietrich that the compatibility information is wrong: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/addon/182410/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/addon/261037/ I suspect this is a problem with some template or default settings in the Add-On Builder, Jetpack SDK, or similar tool.
We recently updated the Fennec compatibility min/max versions in the Add-on SDK to 4.0b3/4.0b3: https://github.com/mozilla/addon-sdk/blob/master/python-lib/cuddlefish/app-extension/install.rdf#L28 Addons need to be rebuilt to reflect this change however. And we should update the max version to be 4.0b4pre now that we've branched for 4.0b3. -myk
(In reply to comment #1) > We recently updated the Fennec compatibility min/max versions in the Add-on SDK > to 4.0b3/4.0b3: Even this will be wrong for add-ons that use SDK features that don't work in Fennec. For example, this add-on does not appear to work in Fennec but is marked compatible with Fennec 4.0b3pre-b4: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/addon/hard-blockers-counter/ Should the SDK be marking add-ons compatible with Fennec by default, when Fennec does not have full SDK support yet?
(In reply to comment #2) > Should the SDK be marking add-ons compatible with Fennec by default, when > Fennec does not have full SDK support yet? Hmm, no, you're right. Until we embark on a focused effort to make the SDK build Fennec-compatible addons and have confidence that most addons are Fennec-compatible by default, marking addons as Fennec-compatible should be opt-in rather than opt-out (as it is today).
Created attachment 512620 [details] [diff] [review] patch v1: removes Fennec and Thunderbird target applications This patch removes Fennec and Thunderbird from the list of target applications, since there is currently no manual or automated testing to verify that SDK-based addons work on those target applications.
Comment on attachment 512620 [details] [diff] [review] patch v1: removes Fennec and Thunderbird target applications looks good!
