Firefox not granting alarms permission

Thanks for the reply, Rob.
I'm pretty certain I haven't shadowed the browser object.
The weird thing is that the webextensions-examples that use alarms work
fine (e.g., chill-out).
But it's looking now like I have deeper problems. Now when I test the
extension with "web-ext run" Firefox opens and then immediately closes with
run: WebExtError: Temporary add-on installation is not supported in this
version of Firefox (you need Firefox 49 or higher). For older Firefox
versions, use --pre-install
Yet I'm using Firefox 55.0.3.
