Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_5) AppleWebKit/601.6.17 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/9.1.1 Safari/601.6.17

Steps to reproduce:

1) Install Firefox Addon build with WebExtensiosn 
2) In Console (while debugging) called chrome.extension.getURL("")
3) Returns some url of type moz-extension://<guid> 
4) Quit your browser. Delete all profiles 
5) Restart the browser and repeat steps 1 and 2.



Actual results:

The results on chrome.extension.getURL() are not consistent and same. Different URLs are returned.


Expected results:

Same URL should be returned. 

In Chrome calling chrome.extension.getURL() returns the same URL for the extension. 

This allows us to whitelist part of the extension URL so our webpages can pass some sensitive information directly to the extension.
