Holidays back, I found my firefox disable by blocking all the add-ons. I try to downgrade firefox and so on and it didn't work. waste of time. you all had succed to chage me to chrome user since these years by updating to block most old add on. I tried my hard to stay. But finally today, I found it's silly dicision to stay only to find anthor not suitable add-on these year. I have to move on to chrome for stable add-ons . wasted me some time to switch to Chrome, but it worth. Bye the original developers for using your product these ten years and fuck the new developers for ruining it. and at the end , I can't figure it out ——Why you want to push your old user to chrome by block add-ons !!

Hey, this wasn't an update and it wasn't intentional. A critical certificate used in verifying add-on signatures expired, so you need a hotfix to install, enable, or update most add-ons. More info in this article:

what you said on /questions/1258208 works for me. thanks. Overview

(1) Install the certificate the hotfix would have installed (2) Trigger Firefox to re-verify your extensions (3) Wait until it is back to normal

wish it won't happen again.

If you skim through the many threads, you'll see it affected users of Firefox 48, 52, 54, 56, and 65 as well as 66 and the Extended Support Release of Firefox 60.

The time factor is that Firefox will re-verify extension signatures every 24 hours. The first time it checked after midnight on May 4th (UTC time) is when the verification failed.

Yes, it affected my different computers' 52\56\60ESR version.I just didn't figure out why this event was triggered after an hour or some time connecting to the network. Ok, I guess I get it.
