Add support for the IE Tab Chrome Web
We would like to support the IE Tab Chrome WebExtension (https://www.ietab.net/) in the Firefox China Repack. Here are Botong's notes from his tests running the IE Tab Chrome extension in Firefox: * With hand tweaked native host manifest and registry keys, the extension can be loaded into Firefox * A few APIs used by the extension are still missing from Firefox, but they don't appear to be in any critical path: * chrome.permissions [bug 1197420] * chrome.runtime.onMessageExternal (the web facing part, not the inter-extension one) [bug 1319168] * chrome.webRequest.onAuthRequired [bug 1190689] * With either 32-bit or 64-bit Firefox, the extension can talk to the corresponding binary successfully * The URL bar for IE rendering in the moz-extension page is visible, while the main content is blank * I briefly suspected the missing of "--parent-window" in the invoked command line [bug 1270359], but when tested in Chrome, the value is just "0" instead of any Windows HANDLE * Navigating with the IE URL bar, the correct page title can be received from the binary, suggesting the embedded IE component is partially working in the background
Hi Kev, can you help with this.
We're going to pursue an alternative solution.
