Mark, I don't think the reporting that we have in that file ever worked. I'm making a change to align it more with the format that Kit added earlier this year Ref: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1255302 Ref: https://github.com/mozilla/fxa-content-server/issues/3668
Updating the title - it turns out that unhandled exceptions in the listeners are reported to content, but errors generated by _sendErrorEventToContent are not. These latter ones are when we can't find a handler to use, or decline to use one due to a mismatched principal.
Summary: WebChannelMessageToContent listener does not forward errors to content → WebChannelMessageToContent listener does not forward errors finding a handler
