Where can I review installed extension permissions?

I have a number of installed extensions but can't find a way to see what permissions I granted them on install.

Also, if I update them and their requested permission changed, do I get notified? It's not very clear.

(I don't remember what they requested at the time of install, and my understanding of what those permissions mean has changed drastically since then.)

Hello MechEthan,

This add-on will do just that :

Also see :

Also, if I update them and their requested permission changed, do I get notified? It's not very clear.

Even though I think it's unlikely that permissions you granted at install will change with updates : you could ask the developers of the extensions.
