This nights Firefox addon f***up - use Waterfox instead - fix is online

Postby ilu » 04 May 2019 04:41

Mozilla managed to break all addons tonight. Don't waste your time with useless suggestions like "turn back the clock" - just sit it out, they are working hard on a fix - and switch to Waterfox while waiting. You can install Waterfox the usual way from our repos.

What version of Firefox is that with Ilu?

I am using version 66.0.3 with EE and not had any issues?

Funny you should say that, I saw the email notification for your post on here Arjen, go into Firefox and there a big yellow banner proclaiming "some of your addins had been disabled " :o :o

I blame ilu, had he not mentioned it, it would never of happened ;)

It is suggested to enable studies, but I wouldn't like that. So I found a direct link to the hotfix on this blog: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05 ... n-firefox/

In FF with the add-ons problem, click this link and install the hot-fix:
https://storage.googleapis.com/moz-fx-n ... signed.xpi

This will enable your add-ons again.

As you like being up late, I don't suppose you noticed the scumbag that tired to break into my place the other night? Apparently that was in the early hours of the morning :evil: :evil:

otherwise we could wait a little longer and a fix should be applied automatically in background within a few hours today, right?

I would not want to use any browser without at least uBlock - not even for 10 min.

Using Firefox 60.6.1esr. I applied the mentioned hotfix from the link. The hotfix shows up in the add-ons, but the extensions still don't work. Do I have to do anything else?

As mentioned on the blog page, the hotfix does not work for the ESR. It looks like the only option is to wait for Mozilla to release the real fix.

Last update:
A Firefox release has been pushed — version 66.0.4 on Desktop and Android, and version 60.6.2 for ESR. This release repairs the certificate chain to re-enable web extensions, themes, search engines, and language packs that had been disabled (Bug 1549061). There are remaining issues that we are actively working to resolve, but we wanted to get this fix out before Monday to lessen the impact of disabled add-ons before the start of the week. More information about the remaining issues can be found by clicking on the links to the release notes above. (May 5, 16:25 EDT)
