 We don't know which extensions Mozilla is showing to users and we are
 generally of the opinion that Tor Browser should not used with additional
 extensions. We can make it harder for users to shoot themselves in the
 foot by just hiding the GetAddons pane with
 `extensions.getAddons.showPane` set to `false`.
