when is the new add-on block process goes into effect?(not day, but time)

Posted

The new add-on block process was announced here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/AMO/Blocking_Process

But I can't find the TIME when those process goes into effect(I only know DAY not TIME) I have to check if my add-on will be blocked or not for my team as soon as possibly, so I want to know when it is. I'm in Japan(JST / UTC+0900)

thank you

Hi hikaruS, does your extension use obfuscated code? I feel that is the only issue which could be determined mechanically, and all the others will most likely be triggered by abuse complaints or the rare human review. So the time the policy goes into effect may not be the time that anything happens, if you know what I mean.

The Mozilla Add-ons team has a forum for questions about the Add-ons site over here:

https://discourse.mozilla.org/c/add-ons/addons-mozilla-org

I think you should work directly with them on this, since it's not a browser support question. Thanks.

Thank you for your reply, jscjer san.

> does your extension use obfuscated code?

I can only say "Maybe not", because I don't have any enough knowledge for extension development. there is no obfuscated code in my .js files I think but xpi file is not so(it is binary file I think), I can't aware which my addon will be block or not. Anyway I have to go the forum which you showed in your reply, so I'll do so.

Thank you for your helping.

Note that the XPI file is a ZIP archive, so you need to open such XPI file with an Archive Manager application (e.g. 7-ZIP) if you want to inspect its content.
