    This is being caused by a certificate expiry. You can get around it by loading the extensions in debug mode. This is taken from reddit:

    A temporary workaround:

    Navigate to about:debugging

    Click the 'Load Temporary Add-on' button

    Navigate to the .xpi file in your profile directory select it and click Open.

    To find your profile directory and extensions:

    Windows:
    C:\Users\{your username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{profile id}.default\extensions

    Linux:
    ~/.mozilla/firefox/{profile id}.default/extensions/

    MacOS:
    ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/{profile id}.default/extensions

    Or just download the extensions you want from https://addons.mozilla.org/:

    Right click on the 'Add to Firefox' button

    Choose 'Save Link As' from the menu

    Save the .xpi file somewhere handy

    Navigate to about:debugging

    Click the 'Load Temporary Add-on' button

    Navigate to the .xpi file you downloaded and open it

    Restarting Firefox will remove any temporarily loaded extensions.

    this is what happens when you use an indie browser... if you're on a PC using anything other than chrome you are wrong.

    I stopped using chrome when they made you unable to go back by pressing backspace.

    Join the dark side and download Chrome! Enjoy the faster browser while still having all the addons like adblock.

    And all my RAM eaten by my browser? No, thanks. I used Chrome for a long time, but when the rumors started that they might disable adblock addons I finally had enough and switched back to FF (which I used years before until thes did something to the bookmarks I hated iirc). The transition was smooth as a baby's bum and I'm not going back into Google's arms in at least that department.


    I haven't noticed a thing, but then again I'm always telling ALL my software to NEVER update automatically, but at least ask before doing so. I had been putting off updates to FF for at least the past month, and my PC is also on 24/7 so no chance to update on restart. Guess that saved my ass (once again). Thanks for the warning though - I'll click "not now, thanks" for a few weeks further then!

    That doesn't save you; problem is certificate that signed all addons expired (and certificate check still exists in older versions).

    Yes, use the browser that is notorious for tracking you. Chrome is just a bad idea.

    Firefox has been breaking things a bit with their updates. I stopped letting it update automatically.

    Imagine using FF in 2019 omegalul.

    Tried using chrome recently. Its shit. Cant use security addons like noscript. There are only shitty equivalents. Adblocks in chrome dont work.

    I use chrome only when I want to use browser with no addons to make sure sites work right, if I cant seem to get them work right on firefox.

    As much as firefox likes to break things sometimes, its still the best I have used.

    Hmm. My adblockers are disabled too, but I'm still not getting any ads on any site.

    Nevermind. First youtube video gave an ad despite the youtuber not having their channel monetized.

    I dunno what kind of user error y'all did. But if you cannot deal with technology stick to Edge.

    My FF 60.6.1esr is working fine.

    Microsoft is dumping Edge and giving up developing their own browser. It will soon be replaced with a Chromium based browser. When this happens Firefox will basically be the only PC browser not based on Chromium. Been using Firefox since it was originally named Phoenix. And Netscape Nav before that.

    Big shame. Most of us have multiple browsers though

    It had nothing to do with user error. There was a bug that caused a security cert to expire which broke all extensions.

    Broke on my linux laptop but not on my windows pc.

    Fixed on laptop by going about:config and changing xpinstall.signatures.required to false.

    Pirate eye patches actually served a very important purpose. This was a time before electricity. The insides of a ship were quire dark. When raiding an enemy ship, the ability to swap the patch from one eye to the other allowed them to have one eye that was ready and adjusted to see better in the darkness inside the ship vs the brightness outside.

    Security Cert expiring is built in obsolescence. It is not a bug.

    Just the usual script kiddies error in the FF org.
