i've been stuck on FF38 for this reason; now i'm trying to fix it. i looked at tabcookies, but it uses getUri() because it does not require access to the document object. does anyone know the answer to this or must i dig around in omni again?

Which addons are you stuck with? I'm not sure exactly what your issue is, but although gDocument itself has been removed, you can basically create your own using the document property of any particular content window. Of course that uses a CPOW and is pretty bad for performance, especially if you use it lots of times. The better solution would be to send your own messages to the content process to get all the information you need in one chunk. All of which is probably a side issue since all addons will either be 100% compatible or dead when support for legacy addons is withdrawn probably in Firefox 57.
