Searching addon by its ID


#1

Hi everyone, would you know if it’s possible to search an add-on when I have the ID?
For example I have ID 653ec393-434b-4ded-bd4a-b4ebb43065e8 and I would like to know which addon is it. Is there a way how to find it? So far I was not successful.
Cheers!

This is not an official method, but often web searches turn up matches on sites that analyze files for malware. Could be a workaround for popular extensions…

You can based on the API, however it appears this extension has no public listing: https://addons.mozilla.org/api/v3/addons/addon/653ec393-434b-4ded-bd4a-b4ebb43065e8/

With chrome extensions it’s an easy way, unfortunatelly not with those for mozilla.

Is that the public ID or your UUID for the extension? The public ID is listed on the Troubleshooting Information page (about:support) and both are listed on the about:debugging page. URLs for pages generated by the extension use your UUID.

The ID is a public one. It is none of the addons I have installed on my laptop. But I would like to find out which addon having this ID it is, for example on addons.mozilla.org

How do you know that if you don’t have the extension?

It’s not on AMO. You can try the new API, which also gives 0 results, same as the v3 link earlier in the thread: https://addons.mozilla.org/api/v4/addons/search/?guid=653ec393-434b-4ded-bd4a-b4ebb43065e8
