Firefox Disabled All Extension After Certificate Issue

You are not alone to not find all of your extensions disabled. It happens with all Firefox Browser extensions.

The issue has been reported to Bugzilla Bug tracker

Firefox Bug tracker

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0

Steps to reproduce:

Wait until it's past midnight on 2019-05-04 UTC.

Actual results:

All addons got disabled due not having valid signature.

Expected results:

If the signature was due to expire, it should have been renewed weeks ago. Not all extensions were disabled. Fakespot and Google Scholar Button were left in their disabled state.

In a statement provided to Engadget, Product Lead Kev Needham said:
“We’re sorry that there is currently an issue where existing and new add-ons are failing to run or be installed on Firefox. We know what the issue is and are working hard to restore add-on functionality to Firefox as soon as possible. We’ll continue to provide updates via our Twitter channels. Please bear with us while we get the problem fixed.”
