For the sake of a better understanding on how tor interally works, If I write a firefox extension (not an add-on), that does some ajax calls to some url (for example,, or some external domain/ip), and I add the extension to the tor browser, will these calls be done through the tor network?

If it does, using what circuit? (assume for example that I have more than one extension all doing ajax calls to difference places); will that ajax call respect other tor/firefox settings? For example, if I disable proxying for some specific domain, and the extension does an ajax to that domain, will tor proxying be bypassed for these specific calls?
