Earlier tonight, with no warning or apparent cause, the vast majority of my browser extensions suddenly stopped working with a "could not be verified for use in Firefox" error message. These include some popular ones, such as Adblock Plus, which I installed from addons.mozilla.org and I'm pretty sure are properly signed.

I'm on FF 66.0.3 and have been since April 10th, and all of them had been working fine up until now. I wasn't installing or updating anything at the time when they stopped working. I typically use a VPN service to connect to the internet, but the problem persists even after I turned it off, so I don't think that caused it. I can't think of anything else that might be the cause.

Any info or ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Using Firefox 66.0.3 I want to disable the blocking of "redirects". I am sick of having to keep clicking the "Allow" button. I want to turn the redirecting off.

On the internet it tells me to check Tools-->Options-->Advanced In Firefox 66.0.3 there is not an "Advanced". The solutions on the internet are old.

How do I turn this off? I guess I want to turn "Warn Me When Websites Try to Redirect or Reload the Page" OFF.

Please tell me (and everyone else) how to do this.

Sorry folks. This has only recently happened, and I am still not 100% sure what the problem is. (Skip to bottom part for recent event)

Ubuntu 18.04 as far as I know up to date with updates. 2019 04 24.

Originally I would load FF and "restore previous session".

The sessions would load - granted slowly, but they would load.

Beyond that, nothing has changed, other than now when I load FF, it just sits there.

It won't start loading pages.

How I make it load pages is click a couple of other tabs and try to invoke them to load.

After a while it finally starts loading.

Using another browser, though not restoring a previous session, the "blank page" loads and I can go to pages and they load there and then.

I really don't want to lose all the tabs.

The plugins have been installed before the problem happened.

Last thing: (Probably nothing, but I want to declare it here now as this is about the time this problem started happening.) I am about to connect to a new type of service being rolled out here. NBN. That means new modem and connection style.

I bought a new modem. Linksys 1900 ACS.

My network is STATIC IP - mostly.

I wanted to ste up the new modem before the "cut over" so it can go smoother. As I didn't know the IP address, I changed/edited the OS network type. From Fixed IP to DHCP.

Rebooted and loaded another browser (only to keep the old session in FF) and set up the modem. All done. Reset the IP settings and all back to normal.

Loaded FF as per normal. The problem then manifested itself.

But as said: Other browsers load and I can surf there and then. Load FF and it just "stalls" loading any page. I can't open a new tab, or much else for a while.

I keep gettting "FireFox has stopped working" dialog boxes, but when I click on the OK in the dialog box, everything keeps working as it should. So while something may have stopped working, FireFox as a whole is just fine, and the only effect is the annoyance of having to click to get rid of the dialog box every time it shows up. I've been waiting for it to happen so I could include a crash report that I knew for sure was for this issue, but it just happened, and there's no crash report line item.

The address bar is a simple concept. You type an address in, you hit <Return>, and the browser takes you there.

Not in Firefox 66.0.3!

In 66.0.3 you type in an address (meanwhile the bar is giving you random crap to "help" you and there's no way to turn this off), you hit return, and....nothing!

The only way to actually go where you want to go is to type the address, *click or tab OUT of the bar*, and then *re-enter the bar*. Then and ONLY then will <Return> actually do something.

Based on other questions, this has happened before too.

Why can't you just have an address bar that works as an address bar?

The PageSuite window comes up, tells me it is loading the selected page(s) and waits while I choose the Printer details. When I press OK that small window goes away and PrintSuite says 'Printing Finished'. Now that's what happened before the New Year, so everything appears to be fine.

It took me some time to figure out that I needed to see what was in the printer queue. That showed nothing.

I eventually thought to set up the printer queue window before I pressed OK. When I do that, the file is sent to the printer and it is immediately removed from the queue. The file name is in the list for a fraction of a second, no more. Just enough time for the file name to register on the screen. So that's the problem I have run into.

Now, details:

Operating system - Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Web browser - Firefox Quantum, v 66.0.3

Printer - Brother HL-1210W

Hi, I really like Firefox and really appreciate that way that Mozilla look after my security but I cannot get my head around the fact that you have disabled one of the most useful add ons that I have ever had Ad-Block?

I had ads and the way that they interfere wiith my user experience, Ad Block, as far as I can see, has done an excellent job of keeping unneccessary rubbish that I am not interested in, off my screen.

This is made especially difficult as there does not appear to be a replacement tool in your recomended list. I wouyld really appreciate your assistance in solving this problem. Regards Paul Carroll

Hello,

My add-ons have stopped working and are shown as Legacy ones.

Also I can't install new ones.

I believe this must have been caused by the recent Firefox bug.

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

For me this is not working and add-ons are still shown as legacy.

Is there anything I can do to cure this ?

Regards,

Nick.
