Firefox add-on signing using web-ext takes more than 5 minutes!

Posted

I am using web-ext to get my extension signed from firefox. Recently, I have noticed that the time it takes to get it signed has increased drastically.

My gradle task is defined as:


task signFirefoxExtension(dependsOn: ['webExtension', 'npmInstall']) {

   doLast {
       exec {
           // retrieve the node bin path to set the PATH environment
           String nodeBin = file("${project.projectDir}/node").list()[0]
           environment("PATH", "${project.projectDir}/node/$nodeBin/bin:\$PATH")
           commandLine "mkdir", "-p", "$buildDir/browser-extension/firefox/extensions"
           commandLine "${project.projectDir}/node_modules/.bin/web-ext", "sign",
                       "-s", "$buildDir/tmp/webext",
                       "-a", "$buildDir/tmp/webext",
                       "--verbose",
                       "--timeout=300000",
                       "--channel", "unlisted",
                       "--api-key=<KEY>",
                       "--api-secret=<SECRET>"
           standardOutput = new FileOutputStream("${buildDir}/tmp/web-ext.out");
       }
   }

}

I have configured 5 min for the signing timeout but I am seeing frequent timeouts.

Are there others out there facing the same problem? Is there anything that can be done to make this signing faster?

Awesome! Thanks McCoy, it looks like it is an issue with web-ext and not with how Mozilla signs add-ons.

Thanks a lot for the pointers. Cheers!
