Steps to reproduce

See attached zip archive with example sources.
I also added a screenshot with different values loaded in popup and on tab

Steps to reproduce:

  1. load extension - localStorage key “data” initialized on background script load with “from_background” value

  2. go to options page and click “Set Value” button

  3. open localStorage and see updated value “from_options”

  4. open popup windows and see old value, however, if popup window is opened as a tab value is updated correctly

  5. after browser restart and reenable extension see “from_options” value, that is still incorrect, because background onload function should rewrite value as “from_background”

  6. reenable extension one more time, now value is “from_background” that is correct
