gnome-shell-browser-plugin does not work with Firefox 60 ESR

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • The "gnome-shell-browser-plugin" does not load in Firefox60 ESR. As a result, "extension.gnome.com" functionality does not work in the browser anymore.

  • Going to "https://extensions.gnome.org/local/" lists no extensions on Firefox 60, but does on Firefox 52.

  • Browsing to an extension shows no "ON/OFF" toggle on Firefox 60, but does so on Firefox 52.

Environment

  • firefox.x86_64 60.1.0-4.el7_5
  • gnome-shell-browser-plugin-3.26.2-5.el7.x86_64
