Hello all, I am trying to build an application which retrieves url of active tab from Firefox browser (I am testing Firefox version 64). I have been reading and investigating how to do it but I cannot find any reliable way. Could someone help and tell me how to achieve this please? Currently I want my application to work in MacOS platform, however if I can find cross-platform way, that would be awesome! Thank you very much in advance

You could check on MDN and Mozilla's general forums:
