management.getPermissionWarningsById()

When the user installs or upgrades an add-on, the browser may warn the user about any particularly powerful permissions that the add-on has requested. Not all permissions result in warnings, and this behavior is not standardised across browsers.
 

Given the ID of an add-on, this function returns the permission warnings for it as an array of strings.

This API requires the "management" API permission.

This is an asynchronous function that returns a Promise.

Syntax

var gettingWarnings = browser.management.getPermissionWarningsById(
  id                  // string
)

Parameters

id
string. ID of the add-on whose permission warnings you want to retrieve.

Return value

A Promise that will be fulfilled with an array of strings, each of which contains the text of a permission warning.

var id = "my-add-on";

function gotWarnings(warnings) {
  for (warning of warnings) {
    console.log(warning);
  }
}

var gettingWarnings = browser.management.getPermissionWarningsById(id);
gettingWarnings.then(gotWarnings);
