Closed Bug 1281882 (webext-port-google-hangouts) Opened 5 years ago Closed 4 years ago

Enable Google Hangout Chrome extension to work with Firefox


(WebExtensions :: Compatibility, defect, P5)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: mattw, Unassigned)



(Whiteboard: [popular chrome extensions]triaged)

No longer depends on: webext-port-pin-it-button
Having grepped the full source code, here is a list of missing APIs:

- runtime.onUpdateAvailable
- chrome.idle
- runtime.onMessageExternal (bug 1258360)
Depends on: 1258360
I get this error when installing from AMO "This add-on could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt" in recent Nightly.

Should I add bug #1313567 in this bug's "Depends on" section?
Bug 1313567 is about the author property and this has no such property in the manifest.

If you want to install an add-on from the add-ons stage server (note the domain), then you need to go to about:config and turn off the signature check (xpinstall.signatures.required). Once I do that this add-on installs just fine, but the browser action doesn't work.
Depends on: 1279012

I strongly suspect that this won't work even if we do add support for all of these things, given that it relies on Hangouts knowing about the extension. onMessageExternal certainly won't work, even if Hangouts did try to use it in non-Chrome browsers, since the extension ID/URL would not be the same.
I will never disable signature check. I will sign it myself if I need to.

Thank you for the extra info.
There are no blocking bugs left on this, so I'm going to mark this as resolved fixed in that it should now be possible based on the APIs.
