What's up with webNavigation webExtensions API?

Documentation says that the only transitionTypes supported are 'link', 'auto_subframe', 'reload' and 'form_submit', but there's also 'typed' emitted. Also, https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/WebNavigation/TransitionQualifier#Browser_compatibility says that 'from_address_bar' is not supported, but it is emitted too.

I want to do an addon that gathers rich history info, visualizes timeline etc., so I'm interested in webNavigation events. Maybe all this just means that I shouldn't rely on values whose support is undocumented?

Hiya,

I am currently looking for bugs to fix as part of my Open Source Development module at Coventry University and I am interested in developing this bug.

Please could you assign this task to me and give me more information.

This is my first bug fix and any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.
