Comment (by cypherpunks):

 The problem is the inability to access the add-ons page, whether to re-
 enable torbutton or to manage other add-ons. Actually my purpose was to
 find a way to set custom proxy settings for Tor. Since those settings were
 removed from the Torbutton menu on last Tor Browser, I went to the
 browser's own network settings page and there it told me to disable
 Torbutton to change those settings. I think I could have done it using
 custom prefs but setting them manually sucks and I couldn't get it to
 work. And after disabling Torbutton, found this bug.
