I have told firefox to NOT disable unsigned addons (xpinstall.signatures.required FALSE) but it is doing it anyway. I want this NON feature turned OFF on my comps.

Starting with Firefox version 48, the add-on signing requirement will be enforced with no override in Release and Beta versions of Firefox. See the MozillaWiki article; https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/Extension_Signing for more information.

This will disable add-on signature enforcement; Firefox ESR version only. Enter about:config into your Firefox address bar Click the I'll be careful button Find xpinstall.signatures.required in the list Right click the preference Select Toggle until the value is false https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox

You can install the Firefox ESR 52 version which will get security updates into early 2018, to get "more time" using Firefox.
