[FIXED] All firefox extensions are disabled

Post by gapan » 4. May 2019, 17:01

Due to a problem with certificate signing expiration, all firefox extensions are currently disabled. Mozilla staff know about it since this morning and are working on it. You can see progress in the following links:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973
https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/certifi ... tall/39047


A temporary workaround is to go to about:config, find the xpinstall.signatures.required setting and set it to false.

Once the issue is fixed, you can turn it back to true. There's nothing else we can do on our side. Hope this is fixed soon.

Mozilla has released FF 60.6.2esr which fixes this problem. I have just pushed packages for it in the 14.2 and 14.1 repositories. As soon as your mirror syncs and you upgrade, you can set the xpinstall.signatures.required back to true.

A package for Slint64-12.2.1.1 and Slackware64-4.2.1.2 is also available in the Slint repositories.

Slint users, as usual, type as root:
slapt-get -u
slapt-get --upgrade-all

If you have a an older Slint version, you can get the upgraded package from Slackware.

Agreed, unacceptable that it caused all of the addons to be disabled. Hope they learn and improve from this and its not a sign of a downward slide.

Thank you gapan for the updates!
