Abrowser by default stops extensions from running on Mozilla domains

Bug experienced on:

Steps to reproduce:
* open Abrowser
* configure an extension of choice (LibreJS, uBlockOrigin, NoScript, etc.) to block all/nonfree JavaScript
* visit a page under either of:
* accounts-static.cdn.mozilla.net
* accounts.firefox.com
* addons.cdn.mozilla.net
* addons.mozilla.org
* api.accounts.firefox.com
* content.cdn.mozilla.net
* discovery.addons.mozilla.org
* install.mozilla.org
* oauth.accounts.firefox.com
* profile.accounts.firefox.com
* support.mozilla.org
* sync.services.mozilla.com

Expected behavior:
The extension should block all/nonfree JS on the page as it does on non-Mozilla domains.

Experienced behavior:
(Proprietary) Scripts run happily because Abrowser is stopping WebExtensions from running on those Mozilla domains.

Temporary workaround:
Go to about:config, click through the warning if one appears, loop up `extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains` preference and set it to an empty string.

This workaround does work but it should not be needed - an ethical user agent should allow the user to use the extensions of choice under any domain.

The presented workaround doesn't work after all. Abrowser ignores the modified preference and still uses its default restricted domains list
