Package: webext-ublock-origin
Version: 1.16.14+dfsg-2
Severity: minor

When a clean Firefox profile is started, uBlock has this annoying
habit of showing off and popping open itself as a sidebar.

I've been trying really hard to create the equivalent of `chromium
--temp-profile` with Firefox: it's surprisingly hard, especially
because of the many things that pop open when extensions are
installed. uBlock is one such extension.

It seems this was fixed upstream:


So maybe it's just a matter of updating to 1.17? In any case I figured
I would document this here since Debian is affected.

Thanks for packaging this!
