I was at version 69 and I could not upgrade because the about:logins
page (I think that was the name) was broken in the later version, and
downgrading to the longer term support version was also not possible
(firefox now refuses to use your profile if it has been touched by a
newer version). So I backported 69 to compile in the previous branch,
and it still works in this branch (at least it built for me). It is in
wip/firefox69-2019Q4.  Maybe it helps some other people too.
