If relevant Mozilla people are here: Send does not work if "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes" checkbox in FF preferences is checked. Even the page doesn't load [1]. It surely is a bug, because I am not closing Firefox.

That checkbox is #1 reason I only use Firefox.

[1] Developer console log output: "Failed to register/update a ServiceWorker for scope ‘https://send.firefox.com/’: Storage access is restricted in this context due to user settings or private browsing mode. main.js:38:10 SecurityError: The operation is insecure."

You should be able to whitelist https://send.firefox.com/ with the "Manage Permissions..." button right next to that option.

I block _all_ cookies except for a small list of sites (like HN...).

This is a current Firefox restriction: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1413615
