  • Patch Lady – Firefox add ins disabled due to cert prob

    Posted on May 4th, 2019 at 00:57 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Kurt Buff on the www.patchmanagement.org list reports that all of the Firefox add ins are disabled due to the expiration of an intermediary cert:

    UPDATE: From the Mozilla discourse blog:

    12:50 p.m. UTC / 03:50 a.m. PDT: We rolled-out a fix for release, beta and nightly users on Desktop. The fix will be automatically applied in the background within the next few hours, you don’t need to take active steps.

    In order to be able to provide this fix on short notice, we are using the Studies system. You can check if you have studies enabled by going to Firefox Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Allow Firefox to install and run studies.

    You can disable studies again after your add-ons have been re-enabled.

    We are working on a general fix that doesn’t need to rely on this and will keep you updated.
