The "spec" we initially had didn't account for hidden extensions. The panel was supposed to only list visible and active extensions like about:addons.

That being said, it seems possible for a hidden add-on to have browser actions. In which case, we might want to show this hidden add-on in the unified extensions UI.

Whiteboard: [addons-jira]

notes:

  • builtin and system are automatically hidden, but none currently use browser_action.
  • some line extensions use browser_action
  • page and sidebar action are probably a non-issue if hidden

considered approach:

  • make hidden and browser_action or action mutually exclusive.
