Firefox add-on update bug (Alitools)


(Igor Slizen) #1

Hello, Firefox AMO team.

  1. I back to you with a question about additional warnings prompts again.
    We add warning prompt in our add-on that AliTools requires permission for access user data from all sites. (https://prnt.sc/im7xg3).

After every update of our addon, when we add new online stores in AliTools our users see warning that our add-on requires permission for access to user data from new sites. (https://prnt.sc/im7gib)
We have a problem again while updating the extension.

One of your team members (Andrew Swan) mentioned, that is a bug 1331769 which was fixed in Firefox 58

  1. I made a small screen capture video to describe problem.
    I Install 4.0.4 Version AliTools
    Click Update extension from extension context menu
    Here is the link to dropbox with video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/63wugzggwo4p6ae/Firefox.%20AliTools%20Upadate.mov?dl=0

  2. Our extension requests permissions to access all sites:
    “permissions”: [
    “http:///”,
    “https:///”,
    “tabs”,
    “contextMenus”,
    “webNavigation”,
    “notifications”,
    “cookies”
    ],

Content scripts are used only on sites where necessary:
“content_scripts”: [
{
“matches”: [
"://.aliexpress.com/",
"
://.banggood.com/",

The problem is that when we add a new URL for content scripts, Firefox asks users to access new sites after updating.

Will wait for your reply.

Kind regards, Igor.
