Referring to permission, would it be too much for security?
Do you have any suggestions?

Hi,
You'll find that a lot, if not all the WX extensions have that info on their Addons Site.
You might want to check a few more extensions out, just to verify.

Add WX Download Status Bar?
It requires your permission to:
• Access your data for all websites
• Download files and read and modify the browser1 s download history
• Open files downloaded to your computer
• Access browser activity during navigation


Those permissions are directly related to the features of that extension.
WX Download Status Bar wrote:Features Include:

* Show progress/status of downloads
* Reveal download in Explorer/Finder
* Pause/Resume/Cancel/Delete Downloads
* Clear all/individual downloads from the bar
* Light and Dark themes
* Auto hide downloads after a specified amount of time
* Play a sound when a download finishes
* Preview image downloads


It's not the extension is asking for permission to use your data in nefarious ways or steal it. Just making you aware of what access is required to do what the extension is made to do.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.
