I’ve been working on a start page extender for a while now, but I just found out all the older technologies are being phased out soon, so I guess I have to migrate. In the past I accomplished this by
- from bootstrap.js, assembling and saving a custom start page based on about:home, then
Components.manager.addBootstrappedManifestLocation to load a chrome.manifest which
- contained three
override chrome://browser/content/abouthome/aboutHome.xhtml modified.xhtml statements to implement my modified js, css, and xhtml files for the rest of the session
This was fast, and it worked well. I’ve spent hours already and I just can’t figure out how to accomplish the same thing with WebExtensions. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks for reading.
