{shrug} The best solution to upstream antics is the one Jake Edge mentions, distro packages, which I always strongly, strongly encourage Linux newcomers to favour over going to upstream (absent rare reasons to the contrary). But NoScript / Adblock even with upstream antics are better than lacking them. Fortunately, both extensions are open source -- as many extensions advertised on https://addons.mozilla.org/ are not.

(My view, yours for a small royalty fee and waiver of reverse-engineering rights).
