[Pkg-mozext-maintainers] Bug#931640: webext-ublock-origin: no longer functional in firefox-esr

After upgrading from 1.18.4+dfsg-2 I found that uBlock Origin was no
longer functional in firefox-esr. Some observations so far:
- uBlock Origin is still listed in about:addons and not deactivated, but
there is no "Settings" button anymore to get to the dashboard.
- Trying to load the dashboard manually by pasting
into the address bar hangs (just displays the spinning wheel in the
tab bar, and nothing else happens).
- There is no icon in the toolbar, and no entry in the context menu when
right-clicking somewhere in a web page.
- The web is full of crappy ads.
In a fresh profile uBlock Origin works, so apparently there is some
incompatibility with this version and my highly customized profile.
For now I have downgraded to 1.18.4+dfsg-2, which involved temporarily
removing webext-ublock-origin because of the symlink → directory changes
in 1.19.0. Any advice would be appreciated, I am at a loss.
