Policies.jsm fails to detect if the add-on being installed by policy fails because of not being signed, even though that is required. It fails with an unhelpful error message here:

https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/df18dd52da04ee2bad434b0ba2d9fcb196d4d15e/browser/components/enterprisepolicies/Policies.jsm#2442

TypeError: can't access property "id", install.addon is null

Do you want me to try to come up with a patch, or do you want to handle it yourself?

Thanks for the offer. I went ahead and did it because I was curious if there were any other issues. I think this catches things correctly.

The error that ends up showing (from policy) is:

Download failed - ERROR_SIGNEDSTATE_REQUIRED - file:///c:/users/mike/downloads/foo.xpi
