Late on Friday May 3rd, we became aware of an issue with Firefox that prevented existing and new add-ons from running or being installed. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused to people who use Firefox. See Add-ons disabled or fail to install on Firefox for more information.

We rolled-out a fix for release, beta and nightly users on Desktop. The fix will be automatically applied in the background within the next few hours, you don’t need to take active steps.

In order to be able to provide this fix on short notice, we are using the Studies system. You can check if you have studies enabled as follows:

  1. Click the menu Fx57Menu button at the top right of the Firefox window.
  2. Click on Options (Windows) or Preferences (Mac and Linux).
  3. Select the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Firefox Data Collection and Use section.
  4. The box next to Allow Firefox to install and run studies should be checked.
    • If the box is not checked, click it to check mark the setting.
      Fx61DataCollection-Studies

You can disable studies again, if you wish, after your add-ons have been re-enabled. See About Studies for more information.

Please do not delete your add-ons as an attempt to fix. You will lose any data related to the add-on. Disabled add-ons will not lose any data.

There are a number of work-arounds being discussed in the community. These are not recommended as they may conflict with fixes we are deploying. We’ll let you know when further updates are available that we recommend, and appreciate your patience.

We are still working on a fix for Firefox for Android. We’ll continue to provide updates on our blog post.

I have my firefox browser set to automatically update. But I do not have the same version as the one you showed. Privacy and security are separate sections and there is no option to enable "studies"

Thank you for your response though

Hi padgetvounder, every version of Firefox needs a new certificate installed to verify extension signatures (unverified extensions are disabled). So far, there has only been an official update for the current versions of Firefox, not for old versions.

Discussions about releasing a hotfix to update old versions were underway as of yesterday; I don't know what will come of that. Until then, if you want to use or install add-ons, you could need to use an **unofficial** and **unsupported** workaround to install the certificate. For example: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1258165#answer-1218833
