While extension installed from xpi work fine, it is not possible to temporary load an extension. I continuously get errors of the following kind:

Loading failed for the <script> with source “moz-extension://b25f38a4-4e35-49c0-bdea-9780376fab86/background/authorize.js”.

For all the relevant source files of the extension (html & so on), note that all these files are present in the folder of the extension that I choose to load temporarily.

This is on Windows 7.

Addons and extension problems are something FF doesn't support or fix that is up to the creators of those to resolve why it doesn't work with FF. They been clear about this from the project start that if the Addon/Extension creators don't update it will not work in FF57+.

You posted here using Firefox 58 which is a Release version now and doesn't have any feature for loading "temporary extensions".

Try using the Nightly alpha version or the Beta / Developer Edition for that feature. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/desktop/
