Steps to reproduce

I converted my local extension in Edge Extension Convertor Toolkit, following https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/extensions/guides/porting-chrome-extensions. But after loading to Edge, it couldn’t be pop up. By debugging the background.js which has the pop up logic, got error below. Is it because we don’t support chrome.debugger? I didn’t find it in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API.

Do we have an alternative solution to solve the issue?

Debug Error:
SCRIPT5007: Unable to get property ‘attach’ of undefined or null reference
background.js (6,3)

Code:
browser.browserAction.onClicked.addListener(function(tab) {
browser.debugger.attach({tabId:tab.id}, version,
onAttach.bind(null, tab.id));

browser.tabs.executeScript({file: "content.js"});
});
