According to https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2020/03/10/support-for-extension-sideloading-has-ended/, support for sideloading has ended.

Can we get rid of this code that warns about sideloaded add-ons in the AppMenu? Or is this still useful somehow?

Hey mixedpuppy, do you know if we can get rid of this sideloaded add-on warning message code?

From what I understand, we're removing the notification in the app menu, which we feel is fine to do. Sideloading is still supported, just in limited locations and requiring user interaction to enable.
