Remove addon warning by Mozilla #488

Open
opened 2 weeks ago by aajaihsbfg · 3 comments

The addon website at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/localcdn-fork-of-decentraleyes/ shows a warning that might scare people away from this great addon:

This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing.

How can Mozilla be convinced to monitor LocalCDN for security? Just get more users? Of course, having this warning might slow down attracting more users...vicious cycle...

Good question. I've tried contacting Mozilla a few times, but haven't received an answer.

There are many extensions on addons.mozilla.org but only a few have this label. I think that is rather difficult.

Many things are checked automatically by Mozillas validation server.

Thanks for the link. I already knew that. (or was that for @aajaihsbfg ?)

Since LocalCDN v2.6.3 the extension contains an audit script and the release of an update takes longer than normally. This could be an indication that Mozilla is manually auditing or testing the extension and then approving it. It's possible that after a specific time (weeks or months) the extension then gets the label.
