[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: I think breaking add-ons is pretty bad, and there may be more add-ons affected in the same way.

Tracked as this seems to be a recent regression from 41.0b4 to 41.0b5.
Dave, this is the bug that I mentioned on IRC/email. It is a recent regression. Could you please help find an owner?

There isn't really anything we can do here other than back out bug 1184387 or accept the add-on breakage as necessary because of it.

It is getting too late to fix this in FF41 given that we don't have a patch ready or in the works.
If this is the only addon that breaks, I think we should ship the patch. Please let me know immediately if there are more that break.
