Development Channel needs a toggle OFF
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20110319 Firefox/3.6.16 Build Identifier: The Development Channel section of the addon page needs to be able to be easily hidden. The way that the review process works means that it's highly likely that at any given time the Public version of an addon may actually be more current than the Development version. For example: 1. An addon is actively developed in the Development Channel. 2. The author believes that the addon is ready for Public and uploads a version based on the development version for review. 3a. The author or users discover a problem in the review-ready version before the review (this may actually happen several times in quick succession as different bug reports come in). 3b. Addon fails the review. 4. The author fixes the problems and uploads another review-ready version. 5. The Development version is now several stages behind the Public version. I don't think it would really be necessary to have the Development Channel hidden automatically, but giving us a simple check-box to temporarily hide it while we are not using the Development Channel would be great. Reproducible: Always
This feature used to be present in the Dev Tools, but it was dropped. I don't remember the reason behind it.
