Hi there -

Uploading even an empty addon to C3 on a mac isn't working. I was using the default example version, which is there, and I got the same error as a modified version of an old C2 addon -
"Failed to install the addon, see browser console for details."

When I checked the console, it says:
Code: Select all
Error installing addon: Error missing addon.json
at o.!ABK.then (main.js:71)
at <anonymous>


Unfortunately, there's definitely a valid addon.json in both the example and the ported addon package.
What to do?

This happens in both incognito mode (free of ad-blockers etc) and in my normal privacy shelters.

    - is it possible to use addons in the free edition at all?
    - is there something else going on here?

System:
- Mac OSX Yosemite
- Chrome latest

You may have zipped "the folder" instead of "the files". Check your zip file, there should be files and two folders (except your extras) NOT only single folder.
