Re: add-on manager malfuction - AMO not working , search hnags, no list extensions
Not sure what SNAFU means and too lazy to look it up. Sorry to hear about the problems you're experiencing with AMO -- I'm assuming you mean the in-product UI of AMO? It seems you're familiar with about:support and safe mode, which is great. Have you tried to reproduce this with a new profile? If you can still reproduce it there (i.e. not just with a fresh install of Firefox), then I would encourage you to file a bug about this.
You mentioned something about not having a keyword in bugzilla -- not sure what you mean with that? Do you mean you couldn't find a bug for this problem you're experiencing? Either way, it would be great if you could file one if you can reproduce this in a clean profile.
As yet, hardly a stir of interest, but the bug is more fully described there.
To be fair, although I've hit it before, I reckon it must be rare, though something could be improved about the way over-capacity is handled.
And I thought I'd reported it before, but a search doesn't turn up a result.
The "new" AMO is something of a bee in the bonnet for me, a regular irritation.
As for there not being a relevant bugzilla keyword, that's me being fallible again, not understanding properly.
Apparently I should have looked for Product=toolkit, component=Add-ons manager, rather than for keyword which is more specific to the progress of any potential fix. Learning curve.
