Yesterday Mozilla has released a new extension called “Add-On Compatibility Reporter”. As you might guess, it does report whether installed add-ons work or have some issues with alpha and beta releases.
Here’s what they say about it:
“After installing the Add-on Compatibility Reporter, your incompatible extensions will become enabled for you to test whether they still work with the version of Firefox or Thunderbird that you’re using.”
Recommended for alpha and beta users only.

During Om’s interview with John Lilly, it was revealed to him that Mozilla is working on iPhone App, which will “surprise people”.
John Lilly said:
“Mozilla will release an app to the iPhone App Store in the next few weeks,”
What would it be?
No one knows. However, as they were talking about Weave and the Awesome Bar, Om Malik has asked on whether it is going to be a part of the upcoming iPhone app. Surprisingly or not, John Lilly just smiled and refused to provide any more details. Hint?
