The "task details" view of the task inspector omits task.extra.  It should be displayed as JSON just like the task payload.

I'm a beginner and still catching up to things. (Have worked on only 2-3 moz bugs till now)

Hi!  This is a frontend fix, in a React application.  The source code is at

You can see the issue here:

The raw task definition being displayed is
and you can see it has an "extra" property with a bunch of data in it.  However, that doesn't appear in the UI at the first link.

You should be able to duplicate the error using your local install (with the same taskId), and then get started fixing it :)

In this patch I am assuming that the contents of task.extra have to be parsed as JSON. 
Do let me know if this patch is appropriate.

Hi Dustin

Could you provide me with a task definition that does not have task.extra so that I can test it and apply the corresponding fix as discussed in the pull request?

The pull request has been updated with the requested changes (for the case when task.extra does not exist).
