garvan, is there a gecko pref I can set to disable the stumbler?

No. You need to call into Java to set android.not_a_pref.app.geo.reportdata.

On the plus side, Stumbler doesn't exist before Fx35, so you can just add a message handler for disabling features in 35, and send that message from the add-on. Older versions will just ignore the message.
Oh, there's a little bit of nuance here.

There's a checkbox in non-release versions prior to 35, and it does track a Gecko pref.

For that, set app.geo.reportdata to false in Gecko.
