Description

5 years ago
As we turn click-to-play on by default for most plugins, I want telemetry data indicating how people actually use the UI:

* clicks on in-content UI
* clicks on doorhanger icon
* single versus multi-plugin UI
* click rates for allowonce/allowalways/stop allowing

- Frontend code uses "let" now afaik
- Is it possible for centerActions.length to be zero?

Given the "CtP discoverability issues" discussion on firefox-dev, should/can we extend this to get data on "hidden" vs. "non hidden" plugin volumes?

Currently this doesn't have any telemetry for when we show the icon, only when the user clicks it. That's partly because we recreate the doorhanger/icon fairly often. Any extension of the data should of course be in another bug.
