Comment on attachment 8985470 [details] Bug 1468830 ignore exceptions when retreiving response headers, Approval Request Comment [Feature/Bug causing the regression]: internal or upgrade redirects cause a failure if a webextension listener requests response headers. [User impact if declined]: some extensions may break all extensions using onBeforeRedirect listeners [Is this code covered by automated tests?]: bug 1462006 adds more extensive support for this including new tests. This change itself is very simple. Existing tests would catch any general breakage. [Has the fix been verified in Nightly?]: not yet [Needs manual test from QE? If yes, steps to reproduce]: no [List of other uplifts needed for the feature/fix]: none [Is the change risky?]: no [Why is the change risky/not risky?]: simple try/catch patch [String changes made/needed]: none
