My Adguard add on was disabled by Firefox about midnight May 3, 2019. Now when I try to install Adguard or any other add on I get the message, "Download failed. Please check your connection." The message occurs whether or not I am signed in to my Firefox account. My security package is Norton Online provided and updated through my ISP Earthlink. Thanks, in advance, for your attention to my problem.

Suddenly while browsing, I got a bar notification saying that some of my addons had been disabled because they were unsupported. Clicking the button took me to a page that showed no addons, but linked to a page for Legacy Addons in which I found 25 of my addons (That's literally all but 2) have been marked as "not verified for use in Firefox" and disabled, despite literally all of them working mere seconds again and a large majority of them being obtained directly from Mozilla's official addon website! Firefox didn't even receive an update or anything, they just all randomly got flagged out of nowhere for no reason. Why are all of my addons suddenly marked as unverified and disabled, and how can I enable them all again?

(The uploaded image doesn't seem to be showing in the support thread, so here's a direct link https://puu.sh/Dnxlm/b471b782d7.PNG )

Hello,

My addons have stopped working. They are all shown as Legacy Extensions.

Also, I can not install new ones.

This is obviously due to the recent Firefox bug.

I have noted the in about:config xpinstall.signatures.required has been set to false so it looks like Firefox has had the fix applied.

I believe this should have cured the problem, but for me it does not work - my add-ons are still shown as Legacy and I can't install new ones.

Is there anything I can do to cure this ?

Regards,

Nick.

All of my add-ons were suddenly blocked and disabled while watching a video on Amazon's Prime Video service. When I go to the Add-Ons manager they are all listed under the Unsupported section. Clicking the More Information link for each takes me to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox

Now, I can't vouch for each of the Add-Ons I've listed below, but I know that the HTTPS Everywhere add-on (2019.5.2.1) has a valid signature and has been working for months for me on the up to date version. All of the add-ons I have are still up on addons.mozilla.org, I just can't use them. Any attempt to download them from addons.mozilla.org results in a "Download failed. Please check your connection." error message:

Every one of my add-ins just disappeared at once, saying they cannot be verified; why? FF 66.

Just minutes ago I got a message that One of more of my add-ins cannot be verified and have been disabled. That turned out to be all of them! On the add-in screen they also only show up under legacy add-ins, even though I've been using each of these WebExtensions for over a year now. Add=ins include PasswordMaker X, uBlock Origin, YouTube Video and Audio Downloader, Reddit Enhancement Suite, ViolentMonkey, all of my skins, and much more. Some of them I just got from the add-on store last week! What's the deal here?

FF 66.0.3 64-bit on Win10
