Addon popups (e.g. uBlock origin) do not contain anything on Nightly

Starting from the last week (as far as I can tell), the uBlock popup is not displaying anything on nightly (works fine on stable). Sometimes it displays the content before quickly going back to a blank state, but I have not been able to find out why.

You should contact uBlock support.

It is not an ublock issue, I have the same issue with the "container tabs" popup, which is a firefox feature, or "cookies autodelete".

I mentioned uBlock because it is the most problematic, considering I now cannot execute javascript on unknown pages (my default setting) unless I disable it temporarily from the addons tab.

This can be an issue with storage.

Did you check the Browser Console ?

You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.

I have already tried in a separate profile which has several less years of usage, with the same result.

The browser console was a good idea, I forgot to look into it, here is what I get every time I try to click on such a menu:
