Description

5 years ago
We found out that our add-on was blocked by FF.
Here is the info we see in FF when we install the add-on:
"DVDVideoSoft YouTube MP3 and Video Download is known to cause security or stability issues" by clicking on More information we get to the page:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/blocked/i496

We also found this bug in FF bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=945530

We are ready to co-operate and make necessary changes in our add-on in order to comply with FF policy.
Would you please give us the list of all requirements so that we could introduce all changes in the coming release? That would be greatly appreciated. 

We also saw information that prior to blocklisting an add-on FF usually notifies the developers about that. We were not contacted as far as I am concerned unless the filters did not let the letters in.

We hope for your prompt answer and we are willing to start asap.
Thanks in advance for any answer.

Please comment on bug 945530 or message us directly about this issue. The reason for it being blocked is that the installer makes settings changes before the add-on is accepted in Firefox, which violates our guidelines: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/Add-on_guidelines
