I checked bugzilla and didn't see anything. Any plans to support
RequestUpdateCheckStatus:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/runtime/RequestUpdateCheckStatus

In Chrome, it's a simple way for an extension to check if there are updates
available for the extension. This is important if you want to get people
off old versions. I don't *think* there's any other way to know if somebody
is using an outdated version.

We're s small shop, so supporting multiple versions of the extension (and
our APIs) is quite a pain. This API would be very helpful to urge people to
upgrade.
