Bug Description

I have installed Mozilla Firefox 41.0a2 out of repositories, but this extension gets loaded on it too. Today this Firefox Developer Edition started complaining about the addon not being signed which prevents loading it for security reasons.

Even if this Firefox is out of repositories, when 41 becomes stable downstream Firefox is also going to suffer from this unless it has patches to disable this which would again be insecure and allow random extensions to be installed from anywhere.

Firefox Developer Edition gives "more details" which is link to <https://support.mozilla.org/fi/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox?redirectlocale=en-US&as=u&redirectslug=add-ons-signing-firefox&utm_source=inproduct>.
