Summary0007120: migrate to Manifest V3
DescriptionThis need to review major design decisions, the most important may be the service worker vs background process:

"First, we are introducing service workers as a replacement for background pages."

"Background pages in MV2 are replaced by service workers in MV3: this is a foundational change that affects most extensions.
Service workers are event based, and like event pages they do not persist between invocations. This change generally requires some redesign"

 * setTimeout and setInterval is not allowed
 * service workers are short-lived execution environments
TagsNo tags attached.

new permission needed: scripting
    chrome.browserAction -> chrome.action
    webRequestBlocking is not possible anymore
    chrome.extension.getUrl -> chrome.runtime.getUrl
    new serviceWorkerHttpLib: using fetch
    new serviceWorkerCryptoWorkerFactory: using syncCryptoImpl
    few other minor changes
    still missing some other changes like migrating setTimeout to chrome.alarms API but al least we have a working version using manifest v3

an important loss: webext is not able to ask for webRequestBlocking permission. We cannot trigger the wallet by reading the HTTP header
