Mozilla are getting a lot stricter about what plugins are allowed to be released for Firefox.

Mozilla is boosting its reputation for protecting internet privacy and security by no longer supporting Firefox add-ons with obfuscated code.

“We will no longer accept extensions that contain obfuscated code. We will continue to allow minified, concatenated, or otherwise machine-generated code as long as the source code is included.”

“If your extension is using obfuscated code, it is essential to submit a new version by June 10th that removes it to avoid having it rejected or blocked.”

Mozilla is accepting feedback on the change in this forum thread. Interested in hearing industry leaders discuss subjects like this?
