    Default Firefox switched NoScript and Adblock Plus off

    I detected this just a few minutes and as I regularly admit scripts on certain sites it can't be that long, but Firefox switched off the NoScript and Adblock Plus (and Flagfox, but that is only a nicety).

    They seem they think they have some security reason for it, but I feel more or less naked now and much more vulnerable.

    This is FF 60.6.1 esr.

    Anybody else experiencing this?
    And what to do about it?

    Yes...

    See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973

    A temporary "fix" is to use "about:config" and set "xpinstall.signatures.required" to false

    YES!. They are back. Thanks a lot, feels much more safe now.

    What will be the definitive fix?

    Looked at the link you provided.

    Seems to be a real bug and thus it will be repaired asap I guess.

    After it is repaired, I assume we are supposed to undo that setting. Hope we get some hint when it is repaired.

    Mozilla are releasing a new certificate ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bu...id=1548973#c57 ) ...

    Don't know when that will make it into the openSUSE repositories, contact the maintainers and let them know of the problem maybe?

    Thanks. I've added myself to the CC list of that bug report.

    It happened to me last night. So I looked around (at dslreports.com) and found the workaround.

    Not all graphical logins were affected. Some had already the fix installed:


    • hotfix-reset-xpi-verification-timestamp-1548973•Aktiv
    • hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug-1548973•Aktiv
