Provide a way for users to control host permissions
Chromeium announced they'll add some more permission controls to host permissions: https://blog.chromium.org/2018/10/trustworthy-chrome-extensions-by-default.html Obviously, Firefox should add these, too. :) BTW it also talks about a new manifest version, but as there is not yet much info about it, I did not create another Bugzilla ticket for that. Please move this into the "WebExtensions" category or something like that.
Hi, Thank you for taking the time to add this suggestion. As you mentioned, I'll move this report to Toolkit: Add-ons Manager component for better visibility and handling. If this is not the appropriate component, please feel free to move it to the proper one.
Component: Untriaged → Add-ons Manager
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Component: Add-ons Manager → General
Product: Toolkit → WebExtensions
Chrome's implementation seems fairly cumbersome and directed at power users of the browser. I'd hold off on copying what Chrome did to see how it is working in the wild. Giving users more control over host permissions is something Firefox should do, but there may better ways to do it.
