Enable Flash Video Downloader extension to work with Firefox
Firefox testing link: https://addons.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/addon/flash-video-downloader-icatest/ Chrome store link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/flash-video-downloader/aiimdkdngfcipjohbjenkahhlhccpdbc Manifest Errors: - Unknown permission "management" - Error processing update_url - Error processing options_page - Signature Verification Error: the signature on this .jar archive is invalid because the certificate used to sign this file has an unrecognized issuer. On installation Errors: - chrome.management.getAll - chrome.extension.onRequest
Grepping through the source code reveals the following missing components from chrome.extension. However, all of which are either undocumented in chrome or deprecated. - chrome.extension.sendMessage --> undocumented - chrome.extension.sendRequest --> deprecated - chrome.extension.onRequest --> deprecated - chrome.extension.onConnect --> undocumented - chrome.extension.onMessage --> undocumented
Why would a flash video downloader need to get a list of all the installed extensions?
That is a good question, aswan. I have flagged all of the management APIs for further investigation of their uses by these extensions as many of them seem suspect.
Component: WebExtensions: Untriaged → WebExtensions: Compatibility
Priority: -- → P5
management has now landed, but getAll hasn't that's bug 1282981
