Not showing the location bar hides a very valuable piece of information from the user. There have been recent discussions on making the information it conveys even more visible to the user. Why is it then that Firefox allows websites to hide it? IMHO, the valuable nature of this information from a security perspective vastly [...]
Does it amuse any of you as much as it does me that MSN.com is currently prominently pushing an article recommending IE users switch to Firefox or Opera?
In the most valuable real estate on the MSN homepage (probably making it some of the most valuable real estate on the web) is an image promoting a [...]
Some months ago, Mozilla decided to reward extension developers who made their extensions compatible with Firefox 2 before October 1st. However, there has been some delay getting these shirts delivered to developers. By the number of queries on the forums and mailing list, a lot of you are curious about this, and while some of [...]
It seems I did more than just break download counts – theme installation was completely fubared Our apologies – we’ve now fixed the problem (thanks to Giorgio Maone and Wladimir Palant.)
Also in the latest update, Morgamic fixed a bug which caused your add-on to be updated (as in, jump to the top [...]

The next thing you can expect to see is information about Sunbird add-ons on AMO. Because it’s not used as much as other Mozilla applications, it won’t appear in the [...]

I think we’ll [...]
Bug 342816 is now fixed – SeaMonkey add-on developers rejoice!
Add-ons which are compatible with SeaMonkey will now show that compatibility info on their listings page, you can now filter your search results to only show SeaMonkey-compatible add-ons, and SeaMonkey-only add-ons are now actually installable (they weren’t before!)
Along with a fix for the approval queue that [...]
I decided it’s time I blogged. I had an old livejournal but it’s been far too long since I updated it, and it doesn’t allow me to have feeds associated with tags, so it was time to move on. I also think that there’s not nearly enough communication between developers and users of addons.mozilla.org, so [...]
