I tested this and it doesn't work (note that the requirement for extension signing has been pushed back another Firefox release. If you're testing with Firefox 41, then you need to enable xpinstall.signatures.required). I suspect the addonhas only had a preliminary review, which is sufficient for addons that are installed via the addon manager UI (such as those hosted on addons.mozilla.org). "Side-loaded" addons (those dropped in to Firefox by external software) require a full review in order to pass the extension signing check.

Honestly, it would be better if this addon was just hosted on addons.mozilla.org like most other addons. The only reasons it remained in the archive when we removed every other Firefox addon were that it contained a binary component and that upstream didn't provide a downloadable version of the addon. Neither of these are applicable anymore (the addon is all JS, and there is a downloadable xpi that will run on every architecture and every Ubuntu release).
