Add-ons Permission: Access your data for all websites?

Kuphostiwe

Why do so many add-ons and extensions require this permission? According to Mozilla Support page, this permission allows the extension to read information I enter into website like username and password. How is this not a breach of privacy? I am talking about add-ons and extensions like ad-blocker and many video downloaders.

hi, all addons that interact with arbitrary websites will require this permission - this enables them to interact with the content of the page (like blocking ads for adblockers or gathering media content for downloader extensions).

Umnikazi wombuzo

Thanks for the reply.

But Mozilla Support page says they could gather information such as passwords. How can I make sure that they do not?

What does it mean: "Dont use passwords in Firefox.."?

Are you saying don't let Firefox store my passwords for websites, or are you saying don't open websites that require passwords in Firefox?
