Firefox will keep blocking webRequest in their Manifest v3 for now, implementing declarativeNetRequest as an additional API - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpDFS-GUytg (7:16)

Though at 11:00, Rob says that "in the long term, we would like to encourage the use of declarative APIs and discourage blocking APIs if possible".

Chrome will kill Manifest V2 in 2023 - https://developer.chrome.com/docs/exten ... v2-sunset/

Does Firefox have any clear plans to kill its Manifest V2?
