Update to 43 deactivates all addons in dual boot setup

more options

Hello! I have Firefox installed under Windows7 and Gentoo Linux. They share one profile on a NTFS partition. This has been working flawless for years now but after the update to FF43, something is not right anymore: Whenever I boot and start FF, all the addons are deactivated. I already disabled the signature checking, and I am sure that I am not starting in safe mode, because FF gets fired up with a link in Autostart. Note, this only happens if I switch from Linux to Windows or vice versa. If I stay on the OS and restart FF, the addons will still be there. What has changed?

The problem still persists with updates to FF-43.02 on windows. Come one guys, this is really a bad showstopper for me. Having to manually enable 27 addons each boot sucks hard. Any ideas, please?
