Firefox’s new Addon Manager [screenshots]

Along with theme redesign the Firefox team is also working on a new Addon Manager which just became available on nightly builds.

The new Addon Manager will be no longer be a separate floating window – it’s now on a tab with a sidebar to choose what kinds of add-ons you want to work with: Languages, Extensions, Themes, and Plugins.


The Detail View in the right panel will either show the contents of a category or an individual add-on, depending on which is selected. Viewing the contents of a category will show a summary view of the add-ons, with basic information and the ability to disable or remove an add-on. The summary view will allow for sorting by categories such as size and date added.


When the user selects an individual add-on, the right panel displays the add-on's information, options, preferences, and the ability to contribute to its developers.

Furthermore, the Get Add-ons section integrates with Mozilla Add-ons page (not implemented yet) that lets users quickly find and install addons.



The Mozilla QA team is holding a test day today, 30th April, on the new add-ons manager where you can help test for bugs.

Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website.
