Firefox have disabled all their add ons!

Post by Big Mac »

It looks like Mozilla have screwed up Firefox and caused it to disable every single add-on!

Here is what someone called Tom Scott said to them on Twitter:

We’re working hard to fix it and will keep you updated.
If, like me, you currently have the Firefox browser open and working on your desktop, now would be a good time to not close it because, if you do, all your extensions will break.
EDIT: Firefox are rolling out a fix using their "studies" system, so you need to turn that on.

I had noticed an increase in the number of ads showing up - and couldn't find ad-blocker when I checked my add-ons list.

I’m still using Firefox 52.9.0esr for now. I didn’t like any of the changes in Firefox 57.
