At the moment, it just watches for tab switches (specifically
onlocationchange and also DOMContentLoaded--but the latter only for the
current tab), although I've been thinking of adding support for
DOMContentLoaded and/or pageshow for all tabs in the next version.
But note that Content Preferences doesn't actually give you per-tab
prefs, it gives you per-site prefs. That is, you can associate prefs
with a given hostname and then use those prefs each time a resource is
loaded from the host with that name.
So if you're looking to implement per-tab prefs, Content Preferences
won't help you much. But if you're looking to implement per-site prefs,
it would be helpful, and in Firefox 3 you don't even need the
extension. You can just access the built-in content pref service
directly whenever you need to retrieve the prefs for some site from
which a resource is being loaded.
