Convert to web extension

Ubufox Extension
ubufox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Firefox 57 and later will only allow to load web extensions [1][2]. This add on is currently a legacy extension, and Firefox will refuse to load it starting with Version 57. Therefore, this extension needs to be ported [3].

Current nightlies of Firefox already only accept to load WebExtensions [4].

Two options here - make official Firefox ESR package (see bug 1676164) or convert xul-ext-ubufox to WebExtension.
