This isn't quite the bug report I wanted to wake up to:

All Firefox extensions disabled due to expiration of intermediate signing cert on 2019-05-04:

bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.

and anyway, wasn't it silly to remove the option to disable mandatory signing in the first place? at least somewhere in about:config

I think you can still do that:

Set "xpinstall.signatures.required" to false.

oh, that's great, it works! I just had a quick look at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox FAQ, and such, no mention in the bug report, and didn't dig further... thanks a lot!

@giocomai

Just don't forget to re-enable it eventually 😉

@fribbledom @feonixrift @giocomai
all my addons have been removed and this doesnt seem to bring them back?
im running stable on linux so the option is still available

curious if I'm doing something wrong?

@y0x3y @fribbledom @giocomai
Interesting; Mine were all still active and not reporting any errors (maybe because I haven't updated anything in a while?) so I tweaked the config out of proactive caution. In theory if the option works like it should, you should at least be able to reinstall the addons.

@feonixrift @fribbledom @giocomai
hmmm, i dont even remember all the addons i had installed

this is upsetting.

@y0x3y @fribbledom @giocomai
If you have a home directory backup maybe you could pull the list out of there? =/

I have Firefox 66.0.3 on linux. All extensions were gone, with a notice when I started the browser. As soon as I tweaked the about:config param, all were instantly back, without even need for restarting Firefox.

@giocomai huh, thats odd. i wonder what im doing/did wrong

@y0x3y

You can check out the "Legacy Extensions" in Firefox's settings. This should show you all the disabled extensions you got.
