Say a Chrome extension is turned off and has the permissions: "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit" and "Read your browsing history", or other similar tracking permissions.
Can these Chrome extensions still access these permissions or spy on you in other ways even if they are turned off?
Let's say that you were to keep these extensions turned off, but then turned them on for 5 seconds or for up to 10 minutes. Is it possible that they could upload your entire browsing history to the developers in that short timespan if they can "Read your browsing history"?
This question goes for browsers like Firefox as well.
