I added Gmail Manager-community 0.7-alpha.1 to AMO on September 1st
But was rejected in quick review process:

Gmail Manager-community Version 0.7-alpha.1 rejected.

Your version was rejected because of the following problems:

1. Your add-on uses the 'iframe' or 'browser' XUL elements without a 'type' attribute. If you're loading web content on them and you don't set type="content", your add-on can become a serious security threat. If you're loading chrome content, be as explicit as you can about it, so that we don't reject your add-on because of it. You can read more about it here:

2. Hidden files and folders flagged. Hidden files and folders complicate the review process and can contain sensitive information about the system that generated the XPI. Please modify the packaging process so that these files aren't included.

3. Using __proto__ or setPrototypeOf to set a prototype is now deprecated. Use of __proto__ or setPrototypeOf to set a prototype causes severe performance degredation, and is deprecated. You should use Object.create instead. See bug for more information.

4. Obsolete Extension Manager API. The old Extension Manager API is not available in any remotely modern version of Firefox and should not be referenced in any code.

5. Extensions should not alter preferences outside of the 'extensions.' preference branch. Please make sure that all of your extension's preferences are prefixed with 'extensions.add-on-name.', where 'add-on-name' is a distinct string unique to and indicative of your add-on.

Please fix them and submit again. Thank you.
