Attachment #9028700 - Flags: approval-mozilla-beta? → approval-mozilla-beta+
I have verified that this issue is no longer reproducible with the latest Firefox Beta build (64.0 Build ID - 20181203202653) and with the latest Firefox Nightly build (65.0a1 Build ID - 20181204215402) installed, on Windows 10 x64, Arch Linux and Mac 10.13.3. Now, only the "Facebook Container", "YouTube" and "Google Translate" add-ons are displayed in the "CFR" section from the "AS Router" page.
