LadyCrimson Posted May 4, 2019 Share Posted May 4, 2019 (edited) There was a line across top of Firefox tonight that said something about addons being disable/no longer supported and they were all "gone" (there technically but not loaded). Seems to be a new bug. It may or may not happen to you, now or later (I'm on Firefox 61 still, others mentioned version 66-ish). Edit: this has happened on my Win7 rig, but not yet on my Win10 rig (same Firefox version on each). https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973 This is the work around I've found from some reddit page. Copying entire post text since I can't figure out how to link to just the one post: Quote I found a workaround for general release version (the one that everyone calling you for help with Firefox has) since disabling extension signature checks doesn't work for release. Problem is due to an intermediate CA for the extension signing cert expired, and thus, all certificates signed by that CA (Mozilla's extension signing cert). You'll need to know the default profile name (there is usually only one, so it's easy for users to pick it in the browser). FF -> Tools -> Add-Ons Right-mouse on the Gear icon to get the menu. Select "Debug Add-Ons" Click on "Load Temporary Add-On..." Browse to your profile's extensions folder: e.g. C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile-ID>.default\extensions or %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*.default\extensions You can temporarily load the extensions one-by-one in "debug mode" (you don't have to launch the debugger). That's as good as it gets until Mozilla deploys the replacement intermediate CA for their extension signing cert or finds some other fix. I'd assume you'd have to redo this every time you exit/restart the browser but haven't tested that. The entire thread I took this from is linked below - there were other possible solutions in it as well, although some only worked for the Developer or Nightly.https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/bkcjoa/all_of_my_addons_got_disabled_and_they_are_all/ Edited May 4, 2019 by LadyCrimson “Things are as they are.
