You have jeopardized my computer with your new update. I need https.everywhere and your update will NOT ALLOW me to use it anymore!
WE always use eff.org's https.everywhere in order to keep our computer extra safe. The newest Firefox update will NOT allow me to use it anymore. With all the nasty stuff that's out there dead set on ruining computers, why on earth did they do this? Do I need to be wary of my previously beloved Firefox as well?

Firefox 41 requires that extensions be signed by Mozilla, which follows a brief review process. I'm sure EFF will take care of that before Firefox 41 is officially released in about 5 weeks.
Would you want to run the current release, Firefox 40.0.2, instead of the beta test release? It doesn't block unsigned extensions. You can grab that here (scroll down to your preferred language): https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/
Alternately, you can flip a setting that exists only in Firefox 41 to allow unsigned extensions. That can be found here:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.
(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste xpi and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click the xpinstall.signatures.required preference to switch it from true to false
