Consider renaming the WebExtensions `applications` manifest key to `browser_specific_settings`

As both Firefox and Edge support browser_specific_settings (which is also what’s in the spec), but only Firefox supports it as applications , I believe it should be considered for renaming.

I agree, we should use what’s in the spec. But I’d like to check with the WebExtensions team too, I’ll ask them for an opinion.

I think this makes a lot of sense, too. We’d need to have a plan to transition to the new key over time. ExE-Boss, could you please file an issue in Bugzilla for this? Thanks.

PR opened: is already renamed, but the old entry was still there in I’ve now changed it there, too.
