Firefox has just disabled most of my add-ons, eg UBlock, Lastpass, etc.

 

According to the experts on Google it looks like it is a bug that Mozilla is working on. Hope they fix it soon.

An Expired digital certificate, from what I've read.

Apparently you can set your PC clock back a day as a workaround; but personally I wouldn't; I just used Chrome as a workaround instead!

Yes, it happened to me too, on Firefox 56.  So I installed Waterfox.  It copied over my Firefox profile and pretty much ran everything the same as Firefox did.  All my add-ons (which are unsupported on the latest Firefox version) were there and working, including their settings.  The only manual thing I had to do was to find my profile and its "session" folder where the Session Manager add-on stores my session backups.  I copied the latest one over to the Waterfox profile in the same subdirectory, restarted Waterfox and then Session Manager was able to load my old session.  Waterfox seems to be running a bit faster than Firefox did as well, which is nice, but that may just mean that it has not had enough time to store all the cruft that Firefox had.

Possibly. I had two desktops with the issue, one worked when tried this morning, clearing the cache appeared to resolve the issue with the other.

Still not working.

 

Looks like it's going to be another nice day in Christchurch, so I will spend the day outside. Lots of leaves to pick up. Also need to finish off the drill press table.

Mozilla have released a fix.

 

Tools > Options > Privacy and Security. Scroll down to  "Firefox Data Collection and Use" and select "Allow Firefox to install and run studies".

 

Restart Firefox and all should be back to normal.👍
