I didn't find a way to put this interface behind pref but probably, because a special permission is required, this should be enough.

Looks good, aside from some minor issues. Thanks!

No need for the `"name" in details` check. We only emit warnings for undefined properties if they're accessed in a non-boolean context. And optional properties are always normalized to exist, in any case.

The binding code automatically defines omitted optional properties as `null`, so please check `details.name !== null` and so forth.

Nit: No need for the `global.` Just add the function to the list of globals in .eslintrc

We should probably filter out this permission, and warn, if contextual identities aren't enabled, in `ExtensionData.readManifest` in Extensions.jsm.

Callback APIs are only used for compatibility with Chrome. Since this doesn't exist in Chrome, please just use `"async": true`, and omit the callback argument. Same for the other methods.

For consistency with other APIs, if this function is going to accept a filter, it should probably be called "query", rather than "getAll".

Is there any reason not to make this a plain mochitest? We currently don't run chrome mochitests out-of-process, so we lose some test coverage.

We should test that update() with only a subset of properties doesn't change the ones that were omitted.

the title should be: ContextualIdentities.remove()

looks good to me.

There should likely be a warning that the API works in Android however it doesn't have any UX related to it.
Thanks, I've made those two updates.
