Description (last modified by diegocarloslima)


Since we're merging Firefox 59, we need to change our ABP dependency to the WebExtension one in order to keep the adblocking functionality working in Adblock Browser.

This dependency update breaks the whole communication between the extension and the Android part, because the WebExtension APIs are much more restrictive and doesn't allow us to use the Mozilla Messaging module. We'll need to adjust our code in order to make the communication possible again.

Hints for testers

Since we're shifting from the old Mozilla add-on to a WebExtension, we need to make sure that all the adblocking functionalities still work and also check for migration issues from previous versions.
