Identifying Firefox extension by ID

Hey there!

We have error logs being created fairly regularly for user(s?) with a particular Firefox extension. We are trying to identify this extension to determine the cause. I know a reverse-lookup (ID to name) service exists for Chrome extensions. Is there something similar for Firefox extensions? Thus far, I haven’t been able to find one.

The extension ID/source in question is: moz-extension://ba9d01f7-5cbf-442b-94bf-f030a6fdc626/scripts/uninterrupt.js

Any insight that can be provided would be much appreciated.


(I originally posted this in the discourse forum, but this forum appeared to have a larger audience, so my apologies for the blatant cross-post... but I'm kind of at a loss here.)

You can open the about:debugging page and go to My Firefox and search for this UUID.

Thanks for the reply, but perhaps I wasn't clear. We don't have the extension installed on our end. Some of our end users do, and we're trying to determine what extension it actually is.

You can't identify an extension because the UUID is random and unique in each case. The user needs to perform what I posted above and check about:debugging or possible send you the value of the extensions.webextensions.uuids pref on the about:config page, so you can check that yourself.

The "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page shows the extensions, but doesn't show the UUID shown in moz-extension:// links.
