Shouldn't we also back this out from 59?

fixup for backing out bug 1415991 post bug 1421084 (so Firefox 60 only) r=jcj
Yes - once this lands on central I'll ask for beta uplift for just the backout patch (unless we need to move faster than that and I'll ask for uplift sooner).

backout patch

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/Bug causing the regression]: bug 1415991 (removing support for verifying signatures on signed unpacked add-ons)
[User impact if declined]: signed unpacked add-ons will break for users before we've had a chance to deprecate them properly
[Is this code covered by automated tests?]: yes
[Has the fix been verified in Nightly?]: n/a
[Needs manual test from QE? If yes, steps to reproduce]: no
[List of other uplifts needed for the feature/fix]: none
[Is the change risky?]: not very
[Why is the change risky/not risky?]: this is a straight-forward backout. It just returns the code to where it was before bug 1415991 landed (and on 59, nothing else seems to have affected the behavior of that code, so we don't even need to make additional changes to make that work)
[String changes made/needed]: none
