Here is what I have:

    % git clone -b jessie-bpo https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-mozext/ublock-origin.git

As you say, it's trivial to make it build and install on jessie.
However, after installation, no ads are blocked until you open the
ublock-origin settings screen and tell it to update all its lists
(EasyList etc.).

On stretch/sid, you don't have to do this, and it blocks ads

We could upload the backport without fixing this, since the addon is
still useful once you've hit the update button, but it would be good to
have a go at debugging it.  I won't have time for this for a little
while, so tagging 'help'.
