    • the options_page manifest property is supported as an alias of options_page.ui - Bug 1816960

    • commands.onCommand listeners now receive details of the currently active tab - Bug 1843866

    • WebExtensions with a granted active tab permission can now call tabs.captureVisibleTab API method without any additional host permissions - Bug 1784920
