OK... Now I can see an issue. Actually I wouldn't expect to see what you are expecting, but something like this:

And I guess I recall themes being showed also in this way.

Yeah I think so, a long time ago when one could actually find stuff there.

Further impact of these declining numbers will be felt as few themes will be able to meet the 10,000 daily users required to be a part of the Delightful Add-ons Program mentioned in this proposal:

Hmm, just clicked on 'Themes' and am getting the Downloads page again. I see changes on the top menu.

Good to know they've fixed that!

Across all of my themes I'm not seeing any *appreciable* upwards movement in downloads or daily-use although there does seem to be a gradual rise in downloads over the last week. Honestly, I think I'm done. I'm getting the lowest feedback from users over the last six months that I've ever had in two years, and without that feedback it's basically impossible for me to adapt and change since Mozilla doesn't offer any kind of automated screenshot testing. Download numbers gradually increasing over the last week doesn't help me make executive decisions or redesign elements that will *have* to be redesigned when 4.0 is released. I've even tried to raise interest here at MozillaZine in upcoming changes in the UI and it ended up in a discussion about whether or not Chrome handles JS better than Firefox, something that I could give a f*ck about. If the 400 million users out there would honestly rather use Personas... sucks to be them.

patrick, it'll be a shame to not have your themes for Firefox 4, but I can understand not bothering with updating anymore with the long-standing problems with Mozilla and AMO.

Though if you definitely are not doing any Firefox 4 updates, you should probably delist your themes from AMO when Firefox 4 is closer to going final or went final. Otherwise you'll get a barrage of one star "Not available for Firefox 4." / "Please update for Firefox 4!" reviews.
