I've installed it with USE=firefox and USE=firefox-bin (two separate computers), restarted the browser, but nothing happens. It doesn't show up in the addons list, as if it wasn't there at all.

I've tried both 1.5.1 and 1.3, and firefox 61/62, but same negative result for all of them. The ebuild didn't say any special setup was required. What now?

This might be related to >=www-client/firefox-57.0 enable systemwide-installed extensions automatically.

Hmm, tried throwing those lines into that file in the firefox libdir. I can see the settings being picked up in about:config after restarting the browser, but no dice. Maybe I need to tweak another setting to get it to rescan the extension folder?

It could be that, or it could be that my suggestion was wrong and this is not your problem at all. If so, sorry for knocking you off the unanswered list. I haven't used system-wide Firefox extensions since the time that www-client/firefox had USE=restrict-javascript to install NoScript system-wide.

Found the answer: Bug 1385057 - Remove support for unpacked side-loaded extensions.

I guess this ebuild (probably others) will need fixing. In the meantime I'll just install the thing via the browser.
