Add-on "I don't care about cookies" not working properly in FF anymore

There's an add-on that filters out those annoying "This website uses cookies" warnings. A very useful add-on. But since a couple of months, it doesn't work well anymore. According to the maker, the problem only occurs in FF on Win, not in Chrome/Opera and not in FF on Linux. And he states that he contacted FF, but that FF didn't do anything to resolve the problem.

I'd like to know what the status of this reported problem is. Because as I said, it's a very useful add-on. And there's no alternative.

You will have to contact the developer of the extension since there isn't any detail in the reply that would make it possible to check the current state.

It seems to an intermittent issue:

Perhaps it is a timing problem: Firefox tries to run the extension code prematurely and therefore isn't able to get the style rules into the document.

I don't know of any way for an end-user to resolve that, but if you notice particular patterns to when it occurs, perhaps a workaround could be developed.

There is a bug on file in the tracking system (bug 1599352) but it's expected to be fixed as part of a large coding project so probably not in the near future.

Thanks jscher2000, that's a useful reply. I've 'upvoted' the bug by means of a comment. I hope it'll be fixed soon, because I find those cookie warnings really annoying.
