I recently made an update my own Firefox extension, called Tab Grenade. It took them 4 months to review. 4 months. And that's for a (very) minor update.

Because of that, I was definitely considering to start releasing it on my own, instead of through Mozilla's add-on website. It looks like I will be able to do that, but I'll have to use the signed extension process.

I'll believe this system works when I see it. After my experience with add-on reviewing, I am very skeptical.




The review is mostly done by volunteers. Sorry for the delay, I feel your pain. Will check here if we can try to get more people onboard to help review stuff.


Addons get signed by an automated process that is independent from the public store review.


Signing != Reviewing.
