User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0
Build ID: 20160313030418

Steps to reproduce:

I restarted my Firefox Nightly.

(I'm only using Nightly because regular Firefox banned unsigned extensions without any escape hatch. I am otherwise utterly uninterested in putting up with an unstable version.)

Actual results:

My extension at stopped working. It no longer crawls my feeds in the background generating new bookmarks, and it no longer registers the default hotkey (accel-shift-o) for opening new stories in tabs.

Expected results:

It should continue working.

Please don't make incompatible changes in a browser that auto-updates.

Errors I see in my Browser Console:

message:"Hotkey key combination must contain one or more modifiers and only one key"

TypeError: doc.docShell.getInterface is not a function

But nothing in my extension calls doc.docShell.getInterface directly

Is there a temporary way I can run private extensions on the current Firefox? I noticed yesterday that the signing apocalypse has been postponed ( Is toggling xpinstall.signatures.required the only thing I need to do in regular Firefox 45?

The hotkey I use is "accel-shift-o". Is that no longer valid?
