We should show the add-on id in about:debugging. If the developer has specified it, then they will know what it is. But since we made applications > gecko > id optional we assign to the add-on in a couple of scenarios 1) during about:debugging as a temporary loading and 2) when signed by AMO.

Notably nativeMessaging needs this id.

So an add-on author might not know it, its simple to add so lets do that.

bug 1380818 show the add-on id on about:debugging

Looks great! 

Just a small unrelated thing I noticed: the addon title is smaller than the rest of the text. 
Maybe we should make it bold (same as in about:addons ?) to make it more noticeable?

I've seen an image from mstriemer that changes a few things and I think it changes the text under the title. Not sure which bug that is though.

The add-on title is indeed supposed to be bold. Looks like the other text should maybe be smaller as well.

I filed bug 1381550 to fix this.
