Was good, but isn't now (anymore) Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen
This extension was good but now it causes more harm than we get benefits of it.
People are allowed to report something like “This add-on no longer works”.
So what could somebody (dev, Mozdev, reviewer) gain from such a messsge? No why, no what, no information.
Reports appearing now inside add-on settings for developers, but most reports miss any helpful information e.g. what other extensions are installed or why the user is still using an old add-on release or what problem the user actually has and why he doesn’t go to the support forum or why he/she is not writing an email?
People can post empty “problem” reports, why? What can a developer do, about a “non-existing” problem without a bug report?
Very often problems are created by Firefox updates or bad/old extensions. In such cases bug reports are just invalid.
Why this add-on doesn’t override the maxVer for themes? This would be the most important feature, because normal add-ons are compatible by default now anyway!
Why this add-on provides the ability to report, that a theme doesn’t work with the latest nightly anymore? I know it works, but but because there was no automatic way to update “maxVer” for a multipacked theme+extension combination without repacking and reuploading, it is shown as “non-compatible”, but it is!
Sorry to be rude, but without new functions the “Add-on Compatibility Reporter” is more harmfull than usefull and three stars are more than fair. It gets 5 again, after new important features will be added.
Feature wishes for next updates:
- override themes “maxVer”
- include information about installed extensions inside reports
- force users to write a (real) bug report
