Actually, I just tested a nightly build from today, and setting

    pref("xpinstall.signatures.required", false);

still allows our two unsigned extensions to be loaded (but with the warning) and they work as expected. Is this because tor-browser-52.0.2esr-7.0-2 is based on a development branch of Firefox? I.e. I cannot rely on this being the case when TBB 7.0 is released, right?
