Very long extension moderation process
redcapshortcut last edited by
As Opera moderators really check extension's code, looks like the more code your extension has the longer moderators will review it.
I have 2 small extensions and their review usually takes moderators 1 day. Minimum it took half a day and maximum - 3 days.

So far it's over a month for me. The Mozilla team also goes through the code and these days it takes a day worst-case. Chrome is 45 minutes. Safari was slow too, but they've stepped it up with App Store integration. The reason I'm submitting is via a user's request for Opera support, and Opera really isn't doing itself many favors here, IMO.

To say the truth - I was wrong. Mozilla's moderation process is longer.
For now I'm waiting more than a month for Mozilla's review.

I am having the same moderation delays on both Opera and Mozilla. I am wondering if anyone here from Opera Tech support can shed some light on the delays?

I am having the same issue.
And it is not done yet
Maybe that is one of the reasons Chrome has 80% of marketing share.
If the excuse to have such a long review process is increase security I cannot see Opera and Firefox more secure than Chrome !

In Firefox the moderation process is also pretty slow but at least they display a review queue position, so you get an idea how long it will probably still take.
Is there any way to contact the guys who are responsible for the review directly?

I submitted updates to my two extensions on Saturday 2017-06-17. They were approved and published two days later, on Monday 2017-06-19. "It works for me."

In order to avoid a duplicate discussion I'll try my luck here.
My extension was accepted on Chrome and Firefox stores almost instantly.
While waiting for the Opera review, several fixes on the extension occurred. So I submitted each version in Opera as well.
Jun 10, 2017 - Version 1.0.0 Submitted
Jun 20, 2017 - I have 6 submissions.
On that date I have received 6 automated replays from Opera:
"Hi! xxxxxxx posted on your wall:
Status has changed for EXTENSION_XXX
You can view your wall here: https://addons.opera.com/developer/package/xxxxxx/
This e-mail was automatically generated.
To respond to wall posts please visit the above URL."
Several things here:
- This auto generated email didn't gave me the slightest hint of what is wrong with my extension
- The email suggested that I can see more information on my developer wall. NOTHING was changed on my wall: no rejections, no messages, no nothing! Everything is in "Awaiting moderation" state.
- If the extension was first reviewed and rejected by an automated script or something and it found problems why I didn't receive any automated errors?
July 04, 2017 (today) - The extension version is 1.0.10 and preparing for major 1.1.0 update on Chrome and Firefox stores while Opera don't want to give me any help on how to proceed.
What the duck Opera?

Submitted my Extension on May 30, 2017. I sent new versions regularly, but nothing done with moderation. Still waiting it. There is no message to know if started or just nothing append !
How could we answer to our users with no information ?
Is there a day you will check and approve it ?
