Block Add-on GUID {bbea93c6-64a3-4a5a-854a-9cc61c8d309e}


(Toolkit :: Blocklist Policy Requests, defect, P1)

The add-on

* hides itself from the add-on manager
* prevents itself from being disabled

* prevents connections to the blocklist url and fakes responses
* bypasses the malware domains blocker
* blocks and fakes responses from update service
* blocks and fakes responses for hotfix add-ons
