Favourite Colour

Shows and stores your favourite colour, in storage.sync in the about:addons page for the add-on.

Demonstrates:

  • storing data with storage.sync

  • reading data from storage.managed,

  • creating an options page and opening it with runtime.openOptionsPage().

To have Firefox read data from storage.managed, create a file with the following contents:

{
  "name":  "favourite-colour-examples@mozilla.org",
  "description": "ignored",
  "type": "storage",
  "data": {
    "colour": "management thinks it should be blue!"
  }
}

Name the file "favourite-colour-examples@mozilla.org.json" and follow the instructions in the storage.managed documentation to make the file discoverable by the extension (on OS X and Linux this means copying it to a specific location, while on Windows it means creating a specific registry key pointing to the file's location).
