Bug 1381605 - Do not load ExtensionSettingsStore's JSON file synchronously, r?aswan MozReview-Commit-ID: 7lQp9hL9pNd

/**
 * @fileOverview
 * This module is used for storing changes to settings that are
 * requested by extensions, and for finding out what the current value
 * of a setting should be, based on the precedence chain.
 *
 * When multiple extensions request to make a change to a particular
 * setting, the most recently installed extension will be given
 * precedence.
 *
 * This precedence chain of settings is stored in JSON format,
 * without indentation, using UTF-8 encoding.
 * With indentation applied, the file would look like this:
 *
 * {
 *   type: { // The type of settings being stored in this object, i.e., prefs.
 *     key: { // The unique key for the setting.
 *       initialValue, // The initial value of the setting.
 *       precedenceList: [
 *         {
 *           id, // The id of the extension requesting the setting.
 *           installDate, // The install date of the extension, stored as a number.
 *           value, // The value of the setting requested by the extension.
 *           enabled // Whether the setting is currently enabled.
 *         }
 *       ],
 *     },
 *     key: {
 *       // ...
 *     }
 *   }
 * }
