Bug Description

Ubuntu Modifications 3.2 utilses the older plugin architecture that is pending deprecation in Firefox 57+ See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Overlay_Extensions/XUL_School/Getting_Started_with_Firefox_Extensions.

Enabling Ubuntu Modifications 3.2 automatically disables Multi-Process firefox for compatibility reasons. This hampers all the performance and security improvements that are part of the electrolysis project.

Ubuntu Modifications 3.2 requires an update to support the new extension platform.
