This project has two interleaved goals: to show add-on developers that Mozilla is working to improve some of the most basic needs of all add-on developers, and to greatly reduce the problems that can be caused by add-ons trying to integrate with the Firefox UI in the most basic of ways, by adding a button to the Navigation bar.
Provide a set of simple, usable APIs that cover the most common Add-on use cases for integrating with the Firefox UI.
Stephen Horlander created mockups for these UI pieces last year:
Erik Vold has implemented a very popular module that adds buttons into the navigation bar.
In order for Firefox to correctly support overflow of add-on items in the navigation toolbar, we need to work with the Firefox's team to ensure that our work lines up well with changes they are making to how customization and overflow work as part of the Australis project.
