I have an older addon that was disabled. it's no longer supported and won't be updated. I'd like to reenable it anyway. I'm well aware of the general "risks" involved and prefer to have use to my tools.

"Download has been disabled due to security or stability issues." The best I can see is that the inclusion of optional search bar changes is the culprit. I'd be more aware however the admin on the report has hidden the comments and the bug-report is a bit lacking.

I would prefer not to turn off all add-on verification unless I absolutely must. But that's the point I've now reached. I'm using FireFox 82.0b3 on MacOS 11 Thanks.

Blocking add-ons is a last resort that Mozilla uses against add-ons that violate Mozilla's add-on guidelines. It doesn't happen all that often and it wouldn't be a good idea to run blocked add-ons anyway, even if you could.

Mozilla does not allow users to install blocklisted add-ons.

See Add-ons that cause stability or security issues are put on a blocklist for more information.

Maybe there is an alternative. What extension is it?
