Description (last modified by mjethani)


The onShutdown global appears to be based on some legacy Gecko APIs (#5702). Its purpose mainly is to stop the scheduled syncing of filter lists. In the WebExt version of Adblock Plus, it appears unnecessary and is in fact a no-op.

Along with this global, the cancel method of the Downloader object can also be removed.

What to change

Remove all references to onShutdown global. Also remove the cancel method of the Downloader object as it would no longer be useful.

Integration notes

In adblockpluschrome, in lib/compat.js, remove the onShutdown object.

Hints for testers

Same as #7376.

@sergz I hope libadblockplus does not rely on the global onShutdown object in any way, but if it does then let me know.
