Bug Description

Impact
======
gnome-shell provides a browser plugin so that users can manage GNOME Shell extensions by visiting https:/extensions.gnome.org/ in Firefox, Chrome and compatible browsers.

This extension will stop working in Firefox once users upgrade to Firefox 54. Firefox 54 is scheduled for upstream release June 13, 2017 and 54 Beta has been available since April 19th.

Test Case
=========
- In Ubuntu GNOME, install the updated chrome-gnome-shell
- Open Firefox and browse to https://extensions.gnome.org/local/
- In the list of extensions, turn on the "Applications Menu". The Activities button in the top left of the screen should now read Applications and show a menu of installed apps when clicked.
- Turn off the "Applications Menu". The Applications button should revert to being a simple Activities button.

* Repeat the above test with chromium-browser

* Repeat the above test with Firefox 54 Beta

Regression Potential
===================
If there is a problem with this update, users might not be able to easily install new extensions. A workaround is to install extensions with GNOME Software (click the Addons button on the main page) but that only works in Ubuntu 17.04+.

Users can also activate/deactivate and remove extensions with Tweak Tool, installed by default in Ubuntu GNOME.

Other Info
==========
chrome-gnome-shell 9 is available in artful. We want to make version 9 available in -updates for 16.10, 16.04 and 17.04 to ensure no regressions when updating to Firefox 54.

There are actually two parts to chrome-gnome-shell: a system helper and a browser addon. The chrome-gnome-shell package provides the system helper. You should be promoted to install the browser add on yoru first visit to https://extensions.gnome.org
