MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek: https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/mdns-new-design-beta/

mozbrowsermanifestchange

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The mozbrowsermanifestchange event is fired when the manifest location of the app loaded in the browser <iframe> changes.

By this, we are referring to the href of the manifest, as defined in <link rel="manifest" href=" … ">.
