When I click 'Login' in the Treeherder UI, the pop-up that comes up says:

  Mozilla Persona: Unsupported Browser

  We are sorry, but currently your browser is not supported.
  Persona works with Firefox and other modern browsers.

I'm running today's Firefox Nightly on Debian stable.

This went away after a restart, so I'm not sure what's was going on.

It would be really nice if that dialog gave a more detail error message explaining why it thinks the browser is unsupported.
Just FYI, we're moving away from using Persona for auth in the relatively near future.

Do you know what Treeherder will use in its place?

Most likely Firefox Accounts. See bug 1032163.

So this sounds like either a regression in Nightly or else an issue with Persona. The popup you see isn't controlled by us unfortunately.

It will be good when we've moved away from Persona to something that's hopefully a little more maintained.
