Propriedadee (Gecko) do Firefox

Currently this contains just one key, gecko, which may contain four string attributes:

  • id is the extension ID. Optional from Firefox 48, mandatory before Firefox 48. See Extensions and the Add-on ID to see when you need to specify an add-on ID.
  • strict_min_version: minimum version of Gecko to support. Versions containing a "*" are not valid in this field. Defaults to "42a1".
  • strict_max_version: maximum version of Gecko to support. If the Firefox version on which the extension is being installed or run is above this version, then the extension will be disabled, or not permitted to be installed. Defaults to "*", which disables checking for a maximum version.
  • update_url is a link to an extension update manifest. Note that the link must begin with "https". This key is for managing extension updates yourself (i.e. not through AMO).

Consulte a lista das versões válidas de Gecko.

Formato da Id. da Extensão

A Id. da extensão deve ser uma das seguintes:

  • GUID
  • A string formatted like an email address:

The latter format is easier to generate and manipulate. Be aware that using a real email address here may attract spam.

Por exemplo:

"id": "",

"id": "{daf44bf7-a45e-4450-979c-91cf07434c3d}"

Propriedades do Microsoft Edge

Boolean property which controls the placement of the browser action.
