Issue with check of permissions during update in web extentions


(Qui-Quo) #1

Dear Support,

Recently we have migrated our addon from XPI to web extensions. After this we faced with issue during addon update. If we add new URL in manifest file, Firefox blocks addon and asks confirmation from client to accept new permissions.

The issue is we already asked permissions to all URLs. And user already agreed with it. And there is no reason to ask again to confirm for specific URL. It requires unuseful actions from user. Please could you fix it?

This is how we requested permissions to all URLs in manifest file:

“permissions”: [

“notifications”,
“storage”,
“tabs”,
"<all_urls>",
“clipboardWrite”
],
The line is “<all_urls>”

Thanks

Regards, Dmitry

Why would ask you for permission to access a specific host when you already have permission to access <all_urls>?

I do not change ''permissions" part of manifest file at all. When new item appears in “content_scripts”, Firefox will ask for new permissions during next update of addon despite of already approved <all_urls>.
