Description (last modified by sebastian)


See - the types reported by webRequest in Firefox aren't the same ones that Chrome supports. In particular, "xbl", "xslt", "beacon", "xml_dtd", "imageset", "web_manifest" are new.

What to change

Make sure that "xbl", "xslt", "xml_dtd", "web_manifest" are treated the same as "other." Make sure that "beacon" is treated same as "ping" and "imageset" same as "image" - this is the aliasing used by the legacy Firefox extension.

Hints for testers

This change should not have any visible effect on Chrome. In order to make sure that it doesn't, you can check the resource types reported in the devtools panel.

The following resource types are confirmed supported in Firefox 53:

  • beacon
  • font
  • image
  • imageset (sometimes reported as image)
  • main_frame
  • media
  • object
  • other (e.g. text/x-safeframe)
  • ping (if enabled in about:config)
  • script
  • stylesheet
  • sub_frame
  • websocket (reported with http[s]:// URL)
  • xmlhttprequest

I did not check the following types since we probably don't care about these:

  • csp_report
  • web_manifest
  • xbl
  • xml_dtd
  • xslt

Service workers, while not reported in Chrome at all, are reported as script in Firefox.

Implemented. This hasn't broken anything in Chrome as far as I can tell so will mark verified. I need to check this properly once #5316 is implemented (and #5386 fixed).
