    Extensions are a type of add-on for Firefox that allows you to add new features to Firefox or modify existing ones.

    Starting with Firefox 68, recommended extensions will now show on the Add-ons Manager (about:addons) page.

    The Recommended Extensions program will make it easier for users to discover extensions that have been reviewed for security, functionality, and user experience.

    In Firefox 68, you may begin to notice the first small batch of these recommendations in the Add-ons Manager. Recommendations will include star ratings and the number of users that currently have the extension installed. All extensions recommended in the Add-ons Manager are vetted through the Recommended Extensions program.

    On addons.mozilla.org (AMO) starting July 11, Recommended extensions will receive special badging to indicate its inclusion in the program. Additionally, the AMO homepage will be updated to only display Recommended content, and AMO search results will place more emphasis on Recommended extensions.

    Your Firefox extensions are all disabled? That's a bug!

    Thanks for the reply. I tried deleting LastPass, re-booted my computer, started Firefox and then re-installed LastPass as you suggested. I signed in to LastPass and then shut down Firefox. When I restarted Firefox it signed in to LastPass automatically so that problem remains.

    And the Tools/Add-ons/Extensions list remains blank although now if I right click the LastPass icon in Firefox it takes me to the top position in the Extensions list (previously LastPass was #4) - so it seems Firefox isn't displaying the entries in the list but knows which ones should be there and their positions.

    I never noticed a problem with extensions during this recent Firefox issue and the only obvious problem now is the automatic sign-in to Lastpass and the blank extensions list.

    Update: The Extension list appears in Firefox's SAFE mode so it looks like my profile is damaged. Haven't had this happen before, could be random or something to do with the recent update....

  5. update the extension on firefox

    The latest Nokia PC Suite 7.1.180.46 that is available through
    www.nokia.com/pcsuite
    supports Firefox 8. In addition to installing the new PC Suite, you also need to make sure that "PC Sync 2 Synchronisation Extension 1.0.0.746" is enabled in the Extensions library of Firefox. Note that Firefox 8 seems to disable all
    3rd party extensions by default.

    I think the LastPass issue can be taken care of in the LastPass control panel. Have it not trust your browser and have your browser not save passwords.

    I have FF 66.0.4. I reset FF back to defaults but it still would not install the addons. After about 5 minutes and a restart it installed mine and works fine now. It must have installed the FF fix in those few minutes.

    Also when you sign into the lastPass fro your browser pay close attention to the remember boxes.
