How do I hook in to the "New Tab" page UI for the add-on I am writing?


I am writing an add-on called Undo Close, for Firefox Mobile. It allows the user to reopen recently closed tabs.

Currently, I provide an "Undo Close" button in the main menu (using the NativeWindow API). However, the ideal location for this button is in the BrowserTab UI. As far as I know, there is no JS-API for the native widgets located therein. How can I add my button to the UI, possibly using ctypes?

If interested, I can supply a link to my add-on in AMO.

You would be best to ask the Firefox for Android developers at https://chat.mibbit.com/?server=irc.mozilla.org&channel=%23mobile they can be best reached from 8 AM pacific to 6 PM pacific during the work week.

As I understand your question you would need https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=799631 to be fixed.
