As of yesterday, my Adblock Plus add-on and themes worked. Today, they are now disabled. Firefox was updated weeks ago, to Firefox Quantum 66.0.3. What happened? Was there a internal upgrade? There are no equivalents that can be added.

Sorry, the Add-ons team is working on a fix for this. It looks like a certificate used to sign many popular extensions expired. (The verification process checks that certificate.)

I don't know how soon re-signed versions of those extensions will become available, or whether another workaround will be discovered. We are all hoping to learn more soon.

Thanks for the quick reply. I thought it was so strange so many simple add-ons such as themes became invalid. I'll keep checking updates. Thanks again.

There is a hotfix released for the issue about an expired intermediate certificate that caused extensions to get disabled that is currently applied via a shield study and you only get this hotfix when studies are enabled.
