MozProfile's Permissions system should use hostperm.1 instead of writing directly to the permissions database


(Testing :: Mozbase, defect)



(Not tracked)


(Reporter: nika, Unassigned)


Currently mozprofile's permissions helper code writes directly to the permissions database, duplicating permissions database schema logic in multiple places in the code. Instead, mozprofile should generate a hostperm.1 file in the profile directory which can be imported automatically into the permissions database on startup by the nsPermissionManager code.
