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?
oS 42.3: After update to 66.0.3 from mozilla repo the extensions are recognized, no need to set xpinstall… to false (it is set to true by default). Studio privacy option was activated.
Note that the update may have nothing to do with it, as the first run after update still blocked the extension, but after a few minutes they appeared, maybe after closing and opening FF again. This could be mozilla’s fix through studio, not related to the new version.
The mailing lists seem to indicate it is fixed for some, but not for all.
In my case, it is not fixed, but that is because of my disdain for Firefox’s direction in the past few years and my customized version of Firefox.
The about.config change is working for me, though, and the security issue with that is moot, since I am not adding any new plugins.
