    window.navigator.mozSetMessageHandler Redirect 1


    This method is used to allow applications to register a function handler to message from the system in order to react to them.

    Any application is allowed to register to any message but some messages will only be delivered to applications that have the corresponding permission. For example, an sms-received message will only be delivered to an application that has the sms permission.

    Contrary to DOM events, system messages will stay in queue if the application has no handler for them. You can check if your application has queued messages by calling navigator.mozHasPendingMessage() with the appropriate type as a parameter. When a message handler is set, all queued messages will be asynchronously delivered to the application.


    navigator.mozSetMessageHandler(type, handler);


    A string representing the kind of message the app wants to register a handler function for.
    A function that is called when a message is sent by the system. The kind of parameters the function will accept depends on the type of message.
