Details

I'm filing this meta bug because the topic of GeckoView support for WebExtensions comes up often, but we don't know if or when we will support them in GeckoView and/or Fenix.
Raptor (performance testing web extension) requires the Runtime, Storage, Alarms, and Tabs APIs. Adding support for these would enable raptor and our performance test suite to run on GeckoView-based browsers.
