How to prevent Firefox from removing my extension's data when I remove debug version?

I have an extension with id setup in manifest like this: ``` "browser_specific_settings": { "gecko": { "id": "{e3ec45ef-43ba-499d-8469-6d0e2f06921f}", "stric… (read more)

I have an extension with id setup in manifest like this:

``` "browser_specific_settings": {

   "gecko": {
     "id": "{e3ec45ef-43ba-499d-8469-6d0e2f06921f}",
     "strict_min_version": "42.0"
   }
 },

```

which uses indexedDB(PouchDB). I installed that extension from addons.mozilla.org, disabled, installed temporarily version for developing and Firefox removes data of both extensions(cuz they have the same id) every time I remove only temporarily version.

This does not happen when I don't set id in manifest(temporarily version has random id in this case), but it's not a solution cuz some API's and Android version of Firefox requires id to be set manually

How to prevent Firefox from removing data of normal extension when I remove temporarily one?

Just in case someone wants to reproduce the issue:

1. Install this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tagit/?src=search
2. Go to extension's page (button with eyes on browser's panel)
3. Go to "Tags" page and create any tag(write something and press Enter)
4. Disable this extension on about:addons page
5. Clone its repository and checkout to commit where id is in manifest `git clone https://github.com/DevAlone/tagit.git; git checkout 8e0d04201865fd7b7543b167279a045c89408d5c`
6. Install dependencies and build `npm install; npm run build`
7. Install that temporarily extension(`build` dir) on about:debugging page
8. Remove that temporarily extension on about:debugging page
9. Enable normal extension on about:addons page
10. Go to the Tags page again to see that database is gone

So when i go to click log in on pandora (desktop website) nothing happens. I ran a diagnostic and it said it detected a "Flash Block" (first time ever hearing about this) and Ive tried both turning flash off (pandora cant play without it apparently) and allowing everything from the Firefox options menu and its still saying its detecting a flash block.

Hi. I have a problem with http://metagmae.org/page/ and I have no idea how that came to me. No matter what I do, nothing can help me to avoid that thing. It auto-starts Firefox and tries to get more information. It is said that it is a virus. And I can't delete it from Firefox because I can't find it. Can you please help me to solve this? I uninstalled Firefox and deleted everything but when I installed it back, it came back! It is terrible and makes me crazy. Please help me with that. I love Firefox and it is now almost 15 years I am using it. I started with Firefox 6.0 or something.

I have been trying for weeks to solve this problem and figure out how it happened but I cannot download any type of file on Google Drive on Firefox and it's been bothering me. I have cleared my cookies, cache, history, saved logins, restarted on private browsing, changed numerous settings and deleted and reinstall Firefox and Abode Flash. Nothing has worked. I even deleted McAfee protection in case it was a firewall problem but that didn't work either.

I'm only having this problem on my HP laptop and on this browser. Downloading google drive files works on my Dell Laptop through any browser.

If anyone has any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to solve it, I would be very grateful. I provided a screenshot of the error every time I try to download a file.
