Unfortunately, the inability to use Apport is a Mint issue and I can't
help you with that. But, using Apport to report Firefox bugs is
mandatory now and we will generally close any that aren't reported
correctly (we get far too many reports to be asking reporters for the
same information over and over again).

I just downloaded a Mint ISO, and it seems they are installing stuff in
to /usr/lib/firefox/extensions for some strange reason (this location
has never been used for anything), but this means that the symlink to
/usr/lib/firefox-addons/extensions is broken now that we've dropped the
version number from the Firefox install path. There are no packages in
Ubuntu or Debian which put stuff in there, and the tools we provide for
packaging firefox extensions don't use this location either (we were
quite careful to check this before making this change).

So, you need to report this issue to Mint I'm afraid.
