So I haven't messed with code or Firefox at all in over 10 years, I'm looking to get back into playing around with rewriting my extensions from back then. One obstacle I have run across is how preferences are stored and how to make default preferences, is it all done with API now? I can't find any documentation that is helpful.

Nuke Anything Enhanced (example extension)

I had trouble with bug 1313401.

WebExtensions broken, unable to store or retain data

IndexedDB vs
