Firefox hiatus

Post by msdobrescu » Sun May 05, 2019 4:35

Hello,

Is anybody hit by Firefox issue?
Look here:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973

https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05 ... n-firefox/
https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/thread- ... /38968/196

I am affected on all my Windows machines except Sabayon installations.
I'd like to know why.

Hello,

setting this parameter below to false and all extensions are back at work.
But, of course, you have to trust your extensions.

about:config
xpinstall.signatures.required false

I still don't have the issue yet.
Also, on other systems, this fix doesn't work.

hmm..ok..I just have Sabayon and all firefox extensions were disabled this morning.
Setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false brings them back into action.
