That information does not support the contention that many FF users have adblock installed. The fact is that FF 3.6 has been downloaded at a rate of 30 million users per week. IF you correlate those downloads to the AdBlock download rate, then that works out to a guesstimate of only 2% of FF users are using AdBlock. Before anyone quibbles about that figure, I understand that there is no direct correlation between the two figures. That's why I call it a guesstimate. But it's a lot closer to reality than saying many FF users have an adblocker installed and causing a CTR drop.

10 million total users.
100k active users yesterday.
Here are the statistics:
The data is clear. The vast majority of FF users are not using AdBlock. We cannot scapegoat FireFox for a decline in CTR.
