Description (last modified by tlucas)


In #6371 we want to self-host our extension for firefox again. For that to work, we need to provide a different extension ID and a different update-URL in the manifest.

What to change

Change mainfest.json.tmpl in buildtools to generate the following entries in the extensions manifest ONLY when no release-build is created, only when building for Firefox ( build -t gecko ):

   "applications": {                                                             
     "gecko": {                                                                  
       "id": "",

Note that "" is an arbitrary id, chosen by us.
