Description (last modified by trev)


We need to add a WebExtension part to our current Adblock Plus for Firefox in order to migrate data.

What to change

Add webextension directory to the build if present. In that case, add <em:hasEmbeddedWebExtension>true</em:hasEmbeddedWebExtension> setting to install.rdf and start up WebExtension part in bootstrap.js. Modules of the legacy extension should be able to require("webextension") in order to get the promise returning a runtime.Port instance to communicate with the WebExtension part.
