Oh, that's rich. Hah! I'm all schadenfreude now! :) I cackle maniacally
at the benefit of running an older Firefox build.

Oh, seriously? I'm still running FF 54.0. I do that because it's the last
build before the change to plugin architecture. So, I can see which ones
are disabled. And maybe that's why the xpinstall preference is available
to me, and not others? The /. discussion seemed to imply that it's more
widely available than Mozilla claims.

But, obligatory comment here about how Mozilla keeps taking more and more
stuff away from end users. Yeah, we so dumb!
