Missing permissions inspector for Firefox - Snapshot of all the permissions used by each installed extension.

Add-ons are powerful tools which can modify the browser using various features allowed by browser. While installing an add-on there is a permission prompt which tells what all features will be accessed by the add-on. Post that we have no way to know what an installed add-on is accessing. Permission inspector bridges this gap and shows what all an add-on can do to the browser.

There are two views for this add-on
  1. Extension-wise: Shows permissions for each add-on
  2. Permission-wise: Shows add-ons using each permission.

Risk impact

Permission Inspector requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Permission Inspector has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
