Samuel, have you managed to fix org-protocol setup? From other messages 
I am almost sure that the issue is not with the firefox add-on.

Anyway in this thread people suggested to use `org-capture' directly, so 
it may be a workaround for a while

     emacsclient --eval '(org-capture nil "c")'

You can add such command to your fluxbox menu. I have the following 
template:

      ("c" "Clipboard" entry
       (file "")
       "* %?%(org-get-x-clipboard 'CLIPBOARD)
" :empty-lines 1)

I do not remember why "%c" and "%x" substitutions did not work for me, 
perhaps too old org system package. 'PRIMARY should be even more convenient.

It was you who found https://github.com/bitspook/spookfox I never tried 
it, but I do not see any way to fetch something from firefox besides 
this kind of extensions (KDE plasma integration or 
https://github.com/osnr/TabFS).

You can copy URL to clipboard, just select text and obtain both PRIMARY 
and CLIPBOARD from an org-capture template.

An idea for any application accordingly to the subject. It is possible 
to obtain window title, something like

  xdotool getactivewindow getwindowname

(untested), or more low level

     xprop -id "$(
         xprop -root -f _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW 0x '=$0' _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW |
         cut -f 2- -d =
     )" -f _NET_WM_NAME 8s '=$0' _NET_WM_NAME |
     cut -f 2- -d =

Finally a bonus for those who read mails till the end of the message. I 
have figured out how to get org markup from selection in firefox, 
libreoffice writer, etc. Unsure if such approach has some security 
issues, I never tried to evaluate to which degree pandoc is safe. It can 
be called from emacs to insert output into the current buffer or "| 
xclip -in" may be appended to replace selection buffer. More accurate 
script can check
"xclip -out -target TARGETS" for presence of "text/html" string

#!/bin/bash
set -o pipefail
selection=primary
xclip -selection "$selection" -out -target text/html 2>/dev/null |
      pandoc --from=html --to=org - ||
      xclip -selection "$selection" -out
