There are many cathegories to filter addons at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/extensions/
However no option to sort by popularity.
A popularity filter to list firefox addons would be a great feature.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
How does the voting work, someone has to kudo/like the idea by manually interacting with the thread?
Is this thread where the voting happens? Seems pretty dead to me.
Isnt there a process where a selected group of people aka community manager looks over the ideas people have submitted and decide which ones should be considered going to to the final selection?
@Winterbolt a kudos (or thumbs up) equals a vote. So other community members can vote by clicking the 👍 button on the main post in this thread. The ideas with the most votes are regularly shared with internal teams here at Mozilla — there's more info in The Idea Journey
Also, Product Managers & Engineers regularly look at ideas...which is why it's important to apply the appropriate labels to each idea (makes them easier to find and ultimately get in front of the right teams).
Alright thanks for explaining things to me.
Well so far my idea to create a cathegorie on the mozilla addons packge to filter extensions by "most popular / most downloaded" has only two upvotes, that's absolutely nothing.However i insist that the idea is good in itself, there's nothing negative about this.
It would be great to see this cathegorie added someday in the not to faar future, ultimately i believe the internal firefox team should be qualified to make these types of decisions rather than strangers upvoting this idea.
