Works for me

Generally it's working fine, but I'm seeing unexpected behaviour where instructions to clear offline website data and saved form entries on browser close aren't actually honoured. This is new to me with version 44. Also, some pop-up menus are truncated and not resizable in GTK3 environments, e.g. Preferences->Privacy->Settings (which might not be new). (And of course, unsigned add-ons no longer work, as expected.)

@dhgutteridge: Unsigned add-ons work exactly the same as FF43, they're disabled by default but work if you toggle xpinstall.signatures.required to false in about:config. The unconditional disabling was delayed to FF46, scheduled for April. See https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/01/22/add-on-signing-update/ .

@robatino: I have had xpinstall.signatures.required set to false since FF43, but for some reason an add-on I'm using stopped working. I've since found it also wasn't working in 43.0.4, but I hadn't noticed. I think it's conflicting with other functionality; it's not a FF44 issue specifically.
