Adblock Plus development builds for Firefox moved to new location · 2018-03-24 16:30 by Sebastian Noack
Mozilla is going to drop support for beta versions from AMO, which means we’ll need to go back to distributing the development builds of Adblock Plus for Firefox ourselves. Furthermore, Mozilla will force existing beta users to be automatically updated to the stable version. So if you want to keep using the development build of Adblock Plus for Firefox you’ll need to re-install it from it’s new location.
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but hope to keep people interested in testing our development builds and give us feedback in order to ensure the quality of Adblock Plus.
This situation is frustrating. For reference, not too long ago, we had to move our development builds to AMO, since Firefox 43 and above would no longer load extensions that haven’t been signed by Mozilla. Just later AMO allowed unlisted extensions to be signed for self-distribution. Finally they are now requiring us to migrate again to that distribution mechanism, without even providing a way to properly migrate our development build users!
