Non-http url attempting to install extension will not display notification bar


(Firefox :: General, defect, minor)

Not set

Spun off from bug 252830, if a uri such as a data: uri attempts to launch an extension install the notification bar code will fail since it relies on uri's having a host.

This simply gives a lack of notification about clocked install attempts in rare cases. The install attempt should still be blocked.
I should add that it is impossible to add such a url to the whitelist. The whitelist is host based, any uri without a host will fail a whitelist check.
