Install works with a new profile.  However if I copy over my production prefs.js to the new profile installs don't work. 

Something had to change between the two csets to cause the same pref to prevent installing add-ons.  Will try to narrow it down.
The pref causing the problem is this one:

security.dialog_enable_delay

Setting it to a value causes add-ons not to be installed.
More specifically setting 
security.dialog_enable_delay = 0 causes the problem.  Seems you now need at least a 1 second count down.
Actually you can set it lower than 1 second.  It appears to need a value that will bring up the count down window.

Summary: add-ons won't install → add-ons won't install with 'security.dialog_enable_delay' = 0 after bug 908304
Confirmed here.  

The countdown should be removed entirely.  It's more an inconvenience than a practical security measure.
