About this; Mozdev *does* provide a mechanism for secure installs and updates
now, but we still get the initial warning about installing an extension from
an untrusted host.
Does anyone know if it would be possible to create an extension that would add
mozdev.org as a trusted source in Firefox? We could host this on AMO so
extension developers on Mozdev would only need to require this extension
before doing installs from Mozdev.org
If the warning about installing from Mozdev was removed the barrier for new
users would be greatly reduced.
