Details

(Whiteboard: [triaged])

In Lightbeam the extension will need to be able to see tracking annotations within the details about the request onHeadersReceived [1].

This bug is to consider adding this to web extensions webRequest apis from the current annotations Firefox has in 'Passive' mode [2].

The details object would have another key of something like "knownTracker".
