Latest release of Firefox 78 disabled all of my extensions and won't let me turn them back on
Firefox just automatically updated on a restart on my mac and now none of my security extensions that WERE WORKING PERFECTLY such a s Adblocker Plus can be turned back on. After 1 hour of frsutration and searching for answers, I am ready to dump what used to be my favorite browser. Anyone else have a solution for this? Thanks in advance.
