This is something that was added to loosely emulate a chrome API and was introduced into Firefox 41. It seems there may be some left over WebExtension infection in these modules. It will have to be investigated.

The original bug does not cite webex but jetpack but it should be easy enough to weed or revert this and accompanying modules back to their pre-webex form while keeping the bullshit imitation of the api useful.

See:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1157561
https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-dev/commits/esr52/toolkit/modules/addons

I would suggest you stop using the extension in question or if it is yours to write it out if you can. The fix for this likely won't land in Relative Pale Moon version 28.8.0 of applications.. Maybe by 28.8.1

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry most of this is above my head, its hard to keep up.
I havent changed anything for years basically.
Is this from a addon?

As of late ua switcher to use instagram.

I can actually delete that but IGTV wouldn't give me an upload button unless I use windows and everything else wont work without android or apple.
Its nice to shift on the fly instead of about config.
You all have a Merry Christmas, God Bless
