Go to Add-ons/Extensions and am told that the add-ons from Trend Micro are not verified. What has changed? What do I do?

It is very likely that up-to-date main functions of Trend Micro are still functioning. Add-on toolbars usually add little value. This post from John99 explains this very well(it is actually re Kaspersky but same story) - < Anti Virus Protection

It is often the case with this sort of issue that the main and most important security component & feature the Anti Virus software; if updated; continues to function properly.

Secondary Features & Components

What is most likely to temporarily be a problem is secondary features and software. Components that may be of only speculative value such as protection from phishing and malware sites - something already built into Firefox and enabled by default. >
