    Just in case somebody only reads the title and wants to ready their pitchforks:

    And to reiterate a couple important points we’ve communicated in our previous updates published in March and May:

    • The webRequest API is not on a deprecation path in Firefox
    • Mozilla has no plans to deprecate MV2
  • p1mrx@sh.itjust.works

    Beginning with Firefox 127, users will be prompted to grant MV3 host permissions as part of the install flow (similar to MV2 extensions).

    Hooray! Previously Firefox MV3 extensions had to include a custom button in the UI to prompt the user for host permissions at runtime. It generally made more sense to stay on MV2 than switch from a 2-click to a 6-click install procedure.
