Steps to reproduce

Sending message to content js from popup js using below code:

browser.tabs.query({ active: true, currentWindow: true }, function (tabs) {

        browser.tabs.sendMessage(tabs[0].id, { ShouldImport: "ShouldImport" }, function (response) {
            if (response.ShouldImportResponse == "Yes") {
                alert('in popup');

Getting message on content js and sending back to popup.js using below code:

browser.runtime.onMessage.addListener(function (message, sender, sendResponse) {

if (message.ShouldImport == "ShouldImport") 

sendResponse({ ShouldImportResponse: “Yes” });

sendresponse is not sending message back to popupjs.
It works till win 10 -15063
but stopped working on win 10-16299
