How to avoid content blocking while developing addons

Posted

I have developed some addons for Firefox, but I met some problems that the function in addons would be stopped by the content blocking, This issue has some impact to our company's product cause customer could only turn off it to enjoy the normal function in our product. Every time our customer use our product, they cannot find the shield quickly shown in the picture, so some information could not be shown, which leads to some issues on our product. Could you please help me avoid the content blocking in my development or give me some method? Thank you.

Hi samgsc, you might be able to find some explanation for the appearance of the shield on the drop-down and also in the Web Console.

If your add-on needs to inject scripts into pages that are from sites on the basic Tracking Protection list, you should consider using a different approach. It is not appropriate to ask users to disable Tracking Protection completely on one or more websites just to accommodate your scripts.

You need to remove whatever is being blocked to make your add-ons work.

Content Blocking is a User Preference. I will not Turn Off or reduce Content Blocking for any add-ons.
