Description

(TBB 8.0a10 buster 32bit)

This is clearly a bug, at least an inconsistency, although I don't even know your expected behavior.
Are addons allowed or why did it say it prevented the addon from asking?

The observed popup depended on how i went there 1) clicking, 2) new tab, 3) reload, but not completely reproducible.

The addon is incompatible with the browser, but it was downloaded, even though the popup said it prevented the website from asking while showing two buttons:

Question: Don't Allow / Allow

At first it looked quite good but i kept trying:
