 Kathy and I looked at #19411 and have determined that the patch is
 obsolete. Code examination shows that when Mozilla switched to the
 doorhanger-based UI they also rewrote the code that adds the badges to the
 hamburger menu. We will comment in the corresponding Bugzilla bug.

 Kathy and I will handle this one.

 Kathy and I will handle this one too. I made a few comments below.

 the patch before there was a dedicated esr60 branch)

 Yes, that is what happened.

 have the hardened series anymore

 We left that in "just in case" but will leave it out.

 This is not really needed since it is in telemetry code. We will leave it

 AddonsManager.jsm from #13052 + adding the AddonManager.jsm in

 You meant #13252. After talking to Kathy, I remember that we intentionally
 moved that code from #13252 to #4234 (but we can move it back if you think
 that makes more sense).

 We followed the format that Mozilla used just above in `list_dirs`.

 > mcs/brade: how do you feel addressing #24476 while you are at it?

 Sure, we can do that.
