 Replying to [comment:7 gk]:
 > That's for WebExtensions, yes, but the blocker here is actually #10137
 and I am not aware that Firefox does work now without ctypes enabled, but
 would be happy to be proven wrong (ideally with links to Mozilla bugs that
 fixed this).
 Mozilla removed `--disable-ctypes` in https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-
 central/rev/2938c8a38f2b and support for anything other than WebExtensions
 in Firefox 57. So, this ticket and #6152 (despite its name), created to
 prevent arbitrary code execution in add-ons, look obsolete now.
