Looks like the problem is caused by the file <chrome://rpcontinued/content/settings/jquery.min.js> being not found. This file is located at /usr/share/xul-ext/requestpolicy/content/settings/jquery.min.js, and it is a symbolic link. The real location of this file is /usr/share/javascript/jquery/jquery.min.js. However, Firefox accesses the file through the path /usr/share/mozilla/extensions/{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}/rpcontinued at amo.requestpolicy.org/content/settings/jquery.min.js. Because jquery.min.js is a relative symlink, Firefox resolves it to /usr/share/mozilla/extensions/javascript/jquery/jquery.min.js, which doesn't exist. While I think that this is a bug in Firefox, a simple workaround is to use an absolute symlink.
