It is possible to upload new versions to stable via point updates. I did
that for dispmua and ublock-origin but only because both were broken in
stable. I don't want to do it every time when upstream makes a new
release which happens frequently for privacybadger and ublock-origin.
I'm ok with updating ublock-origin on a regular basis but in general I
believe packaging browser addons is not something that really aligns
with Debian's philosophy, there is just no long term supported version
and the code changes rapidly because of web browser changes and new ways
to circumvent ad-blockers and privacy tools.
