svg.disabled = 'true' hides the the UI icons in extensions

Description

In "safest" security level svg.disabled is set to true in Tor Browser. This causes the UI icons in the latest versions of uBblock Origin and uMatrix to disappear.

The author of the extensions declined working on this with a note:

"I consider this a browser issue, to be reported to Firefox issue tracker. Extensions extend a browser abilities, they should not be subjected to restrictions which are meant to be imposed on web pages."

However as this is Tor Browser specific, I am reporting it here.

This is a Firefox bug as we just use code that got upstreamed a while ago, see: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1216893. Ideally, we'd fix the problem there. Could you file a respective bug in Mozilla's bug tracker blocking the one that landed the SVG patch?

I cannot create an account at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org

When I enter an email address and click "Create Account" it tells me:

Account Creation Restricted

User account creation has been restricted.
Contact your administrator or the maintainer (bmo-mods@…) for information about creating an account.

Must I go through that (IMO complicated) route or can you handle it yourself?
