Description (last modified by fhd)


Default prefs are currently configured in defaults/prefs.js, in which we call the pref() function to set the defaults. It would be more flexible to configure these default prefs in a JSON file.

What to change

Instead of prefs.js, load a JSON file called prefs.json with the following format:

  "defaults": {
    "enabled": true,
    "suppress_first_run_page": false
  "preconfigurable": ["suppress_first_run_page"]

The defaults property has all the prefs and their default values. Note that contrary to prefs.js, we should omit the preferences branch (extensions.adblockplus) in prefs.json.

The preconfigurable property has a list of pref names that should be preconfigurable - based on the same logic as the third parameter of our pref() function.
