Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130618035212

Steps to reproduce:

- Create a clean FF 22 profile (or a clean profile with Nightly 25, dated 27/6)
- Go to a mega.co.nz file that is >50 MB
- Click the "Agree.." tickbox and press Download
- When downloading reaches past 50>MB Firefox will prompt you with a doorhanger 
that "this website (mega.co.nz) is attempting to store more than 50 MB on your computer for offline use" Allow/Never for this site/Not now
- Press Allow in the doorhanger
By pressing in thewebsite  lock icon in the awesomebar and going to Permissions
you'll see that in the Maintain Offline Storage line there is an extra line below saying that "this website is using x MB"
- Go to Options>Advanced>Network in the "The following "websites are allowed to store data for offline use"


Actual results:

mega.co.nz is NOT listed in  "websites are allowed to store data for offline use"


Expected results:

mega.co.nz should appear in the list

Extra info:
On the other hand, if you visit some other site which stores data for offline use
eg. todoist.com, and you register,
you get the message that "this website" (todoist.com) is asking to store data for offline use> Allow/Never for this site/Not now"
as a notification bar and NOT as a doorhanger (like in mega.co.nz).
And, if you click Allow
then, it's indeed listed in "websites that are allowed to store data for offline use".

Maybe mega uses some "trick" in order to work in Firefox -as I've read- ?
Therefore the prompt is only doorhanger (no notification bar) and it's not listed in "websites that are allowed to store data for offline use".
But, here: https://mega.co.nz/#blog_12 it says that Firefox since v20 is Mega Approved.
(Starting with version 20, Mozilla Firefox finally supports the tiny JavaScript API detail that we had been craving for, making it the preferred browser to use MEGA with).


Also, I think that this other reported bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=878713  has some relation with this, for these 2 reasons:
1. even if you press in Permissions(for mega.co.nz) >Maintain Offline Storage> "this website is using x MB" [Clear Storage?]
the new grown indexedDB data in the profile folder will remain.
2. the message "this website is using x MB" [Clear Storage?] for mega.co.nz
appears only when clicking the lock icon in the awesomebar > More Information> Permissions.
It doesn't appear in the permissions of mega.co.nz in about:permissions.

Confirmed on current Nightly (28). about:permissions doesn't list it either, but I do not get any further permissions prompts.

Two more use cases where there are relevant entries in
'Site Identity Button'|More Information|Permissions|"Maintain Offline Storage (This site is using x MB)"
but there are no entries in 
Options>Advanced>Network|"The following "websites are allowed to store data for offline use"

https://inbox.google.com
https://twitter.com


Also, I've never got this prompt for those sites:
> "This website is asking to store data on your computer for offline use" 
> Allow/Never for this site/Not now"
