After much analysis I have concluded the issues with current webpack (and uglify, when used to build the front end package) are due to the new front-end bindings introduced in Firefox 51. The symptom is usually this is undefined in the JavaScript console, see

angular/angular-cli#9340 (comment)

Currently affected test sites:
https://www.citibank.com (at account login)
https://cloud.google.com/blog (doesn't work hardly at all)

However, it's probable this affects lots of sites and is likely to affect others as they upgrade their front end blobs.

The new front end bindings are https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1263355

This is a huge undertaking. It isn't clear which part fixes the problem.
