BrowserSetting is an object representing a browser setting.
It provides methods to set and get the setting's underlying value, to clear any change you've made to it, and to listen for changes to its value.
Note that while this object is based on the ChromeSetting type, this object does not distinguish between setting the value in normal browsing windows and in private browsing windows. This means that all parts of the API relating to private browsing (such as the
scope option to
ChromeSetting.set()) are not implemented.
- Get the current value of the setting, and an enumeration representing how the setting is currently controlled.
- Set the setting to a new value.
- Clear any change made to the setting by this extension.
- Fired when the setting's value changes.
