Default Firefox losing add-ons all of a sudden

On both of my Macs here Firefox started losing some of it's add-ons seemingly all on it's own. Apparently they're getting serious with add-on signing but as a result they're screwing up add-ons that are signed and designating them as legacy. Did some digging and found these two pages:

and:

Applied stuff from both and my FF add-ons seem to be back to working. Worried me that Privacy Badger and No Script both bit the dust because of this. But I have them back now.

Had similar happen on my Windows laptop. I never put Firefox on my main rig(and maybe glad of that)

A hot fix for the expired extension's certificate issue was implemented yesterday. (Quietly in the background) I noticed ABP and NoScript were working again yesterday morning.

Issue is fixed in the latest release; Firefox 66.0.4 https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo.../releasenotes/

Most extensions, themes and what have you should be fine now.

For anything Fox related the Mozillazine Forums are still the best resource; http://forums.mozillazine.org/

Boy, it's been a while since I was a regular there... Good times.

It was weird when it happened to me. First my usual internet/email/Photoshop machine running a very old version of Firefox (46.0.1 - don't laugh as I have it customized to where I like it and later version won't run in OSX 10.6.8) lost some of it's add-ons. Then later in the day while browsing through some YouTube stuff for tutorials on my daw machine I got a banner notice across the top of FF about some plugins not working and it turned out it was NoScript and ABP and a few others. Was told that a whole bunch of plugins were disabled because they weren't signed. So I did some digging which I do when faced with problems like this and found the two pages I linked to above.

I tend to not run the latest versions of FF because they keep removing features so I did the fix manually. Also turned off Normandy in about:config to hopefully keep the hounds at bay. One of my big peeves with FF is they removed the ability to not have a tab bar when there's only one tab and there's no longer an add-on to do that that works in FF (hasn't been since just after FF 46 IIRC).
