The last E10S issues in Adblock Plus are under review. Next step would be adding <em:multiprocessCompatible> to install.rdf to mark it as fully compatible with E10S and disable compatibility shims which are only getting in the way.

What to change

Make <em:multiprocessCompatible> the new default and introduce needMultiprocessShims to metadata.gecko for the extensions still relying on shims (like Element Hiding Helper). While this approach will make upgrading somewhat more complicated as opposed to keeping the shims enabled by default, I think that most of our extensions are already E10S-compatible (Diagnostics and Customizations don't touch content) and we won't have to revert the default later on.
