Fixes for disabled firefox addons are no longer available?

The short description of the problem is that the following link is broken and I'm not sure where I should go to download that file: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/disabled-add-on-fix-57-60/


A longer description is that KaiOS (mobile operating system going into use in places like india and africa) is building off of firefoxOS, and developing for this requires the WebIDE features that were in firefox until v59 (documentation here: https://developer.kaiostech.com/getting-started/env-setup/os-env-setup). Installing the adbhelper addon (https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/labs/fxos-simulator/adb-helper/linux64/) in firefox v59 doesn't work because of an issue with an expired signing key. The workaround was apparently to install an addon (as described here for Firefox versions 57 – 60: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05/04/update-regarding-add-ons-in-firefox/comment-page-5/), but it appears that this addon is no longer available. The KaiOS people might know of a workaround when I get in touch with them, but their documentation says to use this almost identical fix (similarly not available): https://addons.mozilla.org/pt-BR/firefox/addon/disabled-add-on-fix-52-56/

Hi blake1024, does your build of Firefox allow manually importing certificates on the Options/Preferences page? There's a section for that on my page here:

Hello,

You may have seen a post or received a notification regarding support for Firefox with a link to another site. This is a scam and is not an official site to receive support from Mozilla. Please do not click on the link and do not interact by calling any phone numbers or email addresses listed. You are currently posting on the official Mozilla website and will receive assistance here.

Solution: manually added certificate to firefox under the Authorities tab of the Certificate Viewer. The cert can be downloaded from mozilla's mercurial repo here: https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-release/raw-file/tip/security/apps/addons-public-intermediate.crt
