Firefox fixes the issue of expired signing certificate that disabled add-ons for the vast majority of its user base over the weekend by releasing version 66.0.4, which includes the fix for the expired certificate and disabled addons.

“A Firefox release has been pushed – version 66.0.4 on Desktop and Android, and version 60.6.2 for ESR. This release repairs the certificate chain to re-enable web extensions, themes, search engines, and language packs that had been disabled,” Kev Needham, a member of the Firefox Add-ons team, said today.

Extensions, also known as add-ons, let you customize browsers to do things like block ad tracking or offer video-playback speed controls. Firefox users with installed add-ons were experiencing a frustrating and at the same time strange an issue on May 4, 2019: Firefox would not load any add-ons and would notify users that installed add-ons could not be enabled because they could not be verified by the browser.

Mozilla started to distribute a hotfix to some Firefox channels such as Firefox Stable, Beta and Nightly, but that required that users had Shield Studies activated on their systems. However, Mozilla started to work on Firefox 66.0.4 and updates for other versions of Firefox at the same time. The new release is already on the server but it is not in distribution yet. The update should resolve the issue for Stable channel users and Android users who also get the update.

Security certificates are said to make the computing world work systematically, and renewing them is a routine part of computing operations. But if a renewal slips through the cracks, it can affect everything from software updates to the ability to use websites protected by encryption.
