Hi Tushar, I've assigned the bug to you.

This would require a few things:
 - modify the AddonInstall.startInstall() method somewhere around [1], 
 - so that extraProperties includes a property named `temporarilyInstalled`, similar to [2],
 - which will be forwarded through `addonData` to the `onInstalled` implementation [3],
 - where you can then pass the flag as a property named `temporary`,
 - and finally, add a test to [4].

Let me know if you have any more questions.

This should be:

Hey!

Sorry for late response, was a little bit busy.

I am not able to understand, what we want to accomplish in this bug. Please can you elobrate?

>  - where you can then pass the flag as a property named `temporary`,

Also, when we talk about "temporary" flag, is it similar to "reason"?

On basis of your instruction, done some changes, but not sure if I am in right direction. Please have a look.

Thanks!!

Bug 1354590 - Add 'temporary' flag to runtime.onInstalled details.

Thanks, this is in the right direction, but not quite there.

The `temporarilyInstalled` flag will only be present when it's true, so you should ensure `temporary` is boolean:
```
    temporary: !!extension.addonData.temporarilyInstalled
```

I don't think this will work.  Did you try it?

You probably need to compare the `aInstallLocation` argument to `TemporaryInstallLocation`.  Also, this likely shouldn't be inside the two if statements, as they are about calling the `shutdown` method.  The `install` is called a dozen lines below.

We want the extension to be able to know if it was being installed as a temporary extension through about:debugging.


> Also, when we talk about "temporary" flag, is it similar to "reason"?
Yes, somewhat similar.  Extension can use `reason` to see why it was installed/updated, and `temporary` to see if that install was, well, temporary.

Hey!

I have made required changes. Please have a look and let me know if any further modifications is required.

I do not know for sure, but from my past experience, I think we need to update the schema of runtime [1], as I think temporary is a parameter of onInstalled event. Am I wrong?

Bug 1354590 - Add 'temporary' flag to runtime.onInstalled details.

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/135184/#review139806

This is close, but you are missing a test for when the flag is true.  To do that, you need to pass `useAddonManager: "permanent"` when loading the extension.  And yeah, you should add the flag to the json schema, and mark it optional.

I don't think an addon can be temporarily installed on APP_STARTUP.

nit: you can calculate the local value `temporary` once, and use it in both places.

Why are you removing previousVersion here?  Don't do that.

details.temporary is optional, so we should make onInstalledTemporary optional as well, and default it to false.  In other words, just convert both to boolean before comparing them.

And given that we made it optional above, we don't actually need to add it when it is false, here or below.

nits: please use ===, no need for parentheses, and I still think this would be better around line #4145, so that it can be picked up in the shutdown/uninstall case too.

nit: you can just use property value shorthand [1], here and below, like so:

    fire.sync({reason: "install", temporary});

Looking good but there should also be a test case that for regular installation, the temporary flag is false (this can probably just be added to an existing test)

just give onInstalledTemporary a default value instead of using `!!` please

The updated `expectEvents` always checks the value of `details.temporary`, and expects false by default, so I thought this was covered by existing tests.  Or did you have something else in mind?

It's not sent on APP_STARTUP.  I guess we could just send `false`, but I didn't like it since I don't think it could ever be true in that case.

Duh, of course.  That's kind of non-obvious though, how about forgetting the line-item comment about giving it a default value and just passing it in explicitly, its like a dozen call sites.
