Details

Bug 693899 adds support for detecting binary components. Should be able to get rid of some additional false-positives by also parsing the OS/ABI/app/version flags, since addons might use js-ctypes but fallback to binary components for older platform versions (for example).
Blocks: 422939
Loading binary components from extensions is not going to be supported after support for non-WebExtensions had ended: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/11/23/add-ons-in-2017/

The supported way to interact with native apps from a WebExtension is Native Messaging:
