Firefox 7 blog post

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.208.166

Hello,

The Add-ons Blog is now featuring a blog post on Firefox 7 compatibility:

http://blog.mozilla.com/addons/2011/07/19/firefox-7-compat-looking-to-8/

It's important to note the changes to the JSON parsing interfaces. In a 
nutshell the nsIJSON component no longer has the encode and decode 
methods, and instead you should be using the global JSON object instead. 
It's possible the change will be rolled back, but it would only be done 
as a temporary measure. We strongly recommend that you change your code 
accordingly to use the JSON object.

The post also includes a few notes regarding Firefox 8.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Regards,

Jorge Villalobos
