Submitting to Firefox Apps

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Disregard this, setting the mime type apparently did work.

I tried submitting my Pucked game to Firefox's App store, and failed validation with:
---
Your app failed validation with 1 error.
Manifests must be served with the HTTP header "Content-Type: application/x-web-app-manifest+json". See https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Apps/Manifest#Serving_manifests for more information.
---
in the validation details:
---
JSON Parse Error
Error: The webapp extension could not be parsed due to a syntax error in the JSON.
Manifests must be served with the HTTP header "Content-Type: application/x-web-app-manifest+json". See https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Apps/Manifest#Serving_manifests for more information.
---

edit: I tried adding the mime type to my web.config file:
<staticContent>
<mimeMap fileExtension=".jps" mimeType="image/x-jps" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".ogg" mimeType="audio/ogg" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".m4a" mimeType="audio/mp4" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".webapp" mimeType="application/x-web-app-manifest+json" />
</staticContent>

on the offchance it just wasn't seeing it, but that made no difference. (unless I'm doing that wrong.)

Closing, don't forget to read the documentation on how to export an open web app which covers this.

@Ashley, I tried to click on help in the exporter in Construct2 but it took me to the Scirra home page, so I thought it wasn't written yet.

and now I click on it and it works fine. Figures.

@Paradox - manual entries and tutorials are only written around the stable release, so the link wouldn't have gone anywhere until r114.
