All of a sudden all of my addons corrupted and I can not reinstall ANY of them. I need help reinstalling them. Nothing on my machine was changed. No software updates happened. I have Firefox 66.0.3 64 bit running Win10. I uninstalled, reinstalled, rebooted, but nothing will reinstall.

Mozilla has rolled-out a fix for this. The fix will be automatically applied in the background within the next few hours, you don’t need to take active steps.

In order to be able to provide this fix on short notice, they are using the Studies system. You can check if you have studies enabled

  1. Go to [=] > Options > Privacy & Security.
  2. Make sure Allow Firefox to install and run studies is check marked.

I you had it disabled, you can disable studies again after your add-ons have been re-enabled.

They are working on a general fix that doesn't need to rely on this and will keep you updated.

Even Ghostery won't reinstall !!!

Sorry, the Add-ons team is working on a fix for this. It looks like a certificate used to sign many popular extensions expired. (The verification process checks that certificate.)

I don't know how soon re-signed versions of those extensions will become available, or whether another workaround will be discovered. We are all hoping to learn more soon.

I can't believe someone missed this. I will try again tomorrow. If it is still broken then, I guess I'll switch over to Chrome. Thanks for the reply.

Just remember, Chrome ISN'T customizable...not that 66.0.3 is (pft) currently. Complaints like yours and mine are coming in faster and faster. At the moment FF is BrokenFox.

The hotfix appeared to have solved the issue for now. I was able to reinstall my add-ons.

I don't have to install Chrome (for now) !!!!
