This is a follow-on to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1401783, I have the same problem - I've followed https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/extended-add-support (which is for some bizarre reason marked "no longer maintained"), to create the custom collection https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/17515772/raxod502/ so that I can override the arbitrary blocking of third-party extensions that Mozilla applies by default.

This allows me to install most extensions but for some reason https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/duochrome/ is not showing up in the interface on Firefox for Android, despite being in the custom collection. No information is given about why it is not showing up. I am not aware of any reason why it would be blocked. Here's the manifest.json: https://github.com/FreshSupaSulley/Duochrome/blob/main/firefox/manifest.json

How can I fix this and use whatever extensions I want to use, or at least get a valid error message about why Mozilla is blocking the extension?

Creating a new thread since the older one just says "Even using that approach, not all add-ons are supported in Firefox for Android at the present time", which doesn't help at all - there is no reason why any addon should be blocked for mobile usage unless it is explicitly configured as such, and even if that were reasonable, it doesn't help explain what specifically is wrong with the extension I'm trying to install.

https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2023/11/28/open-extensions-on-firefox-for-android-debut-december-14-but-you-can-get-a-sneak-peek-today/ *claims* that the byzantine custom addon collection process is no longer required, but I followed the link in that article that is supposed to explain how to test Android compatibility for an addon, and it goes to https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/developing-extensions-for-firefox-for-android/ which just says to check "web-ext lint", which I did and it does not report any errors. So, what gives? Is this some checkbox that has to be enabled by the app developer when uploading, so we now have to contact every single app developer to have them do that?

Hi

Thank you for helping to test the Nightly build of Firefox for Android.

Add-ons can now be installed directly from the Firefox add-ons site without having to use the old extended support method.

If you need support developing an add-on, I recommend that you ask in the add-ons forum at https://discourse.mozilla.org/c/add-ons/35

Thank you.
