 It seems the infrastructure was already there starting with Firefox 44:

 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1192924 and

 Now, they probably just were ready with the "your Firefox is out of

 our `data:text/plain,` trick. And think about how to get rid of already
 installed system extensions.
