libreJS v7 is now considered to be the current stable release and is a nearly total re-write; so this issue very likely refers to only to the previous version that was obsoleted my mozilla - all further development will be on libreJS v7 so this issue is marked as "wont-fix" for now unless it can be show to pertain also to libreJS v7

as this behavior was seen using libreJS v6, could someone try libreJS v7 on a firefox derivative >= v57 to see if the same issue still exists?

I cannot confirm. It works for me as of 6.0.8.
