One of the big hassles with upgrading the Firefox web browser if you’ve got a bunch of add-ons installed is finding out which ones work and which don’t. Which is where this free new Add-on Compatibility Reporter should come in real handy.
By using this tool to rate your plugins as working/not working, you’re helping the whole community to learn which ones need updating, which is a good thing all round. You also encourage the developers to get cracking with an update so your fave browser can once again do its proper job. It also works the other way round, so add-ons that are working but marked as incompatible can be correctly identified through your testing. Win:Win.
After installing the Add-on Compatibility Reporter, your incompatible extensions will become enabled for you to test whether they still work with the version of Firefox or Thunderbird that you’re using. If you notice that one of your add-ons doesn’t seem to be working the same way it did in previous versions of the application, just open the Add-ons Manager and click Compatibility next to that add-on to send a report to Mozilla.
