    Firefox 66.0.4 released with fix for bug that disabled add-ons (extensions)


    In the past few days, users widely reported that Firefox is not allowing them to install many of the listed add-ons and the existing extensions have been also disabled. Findings revealed that bug is related to an expired certificate and the problem is not because of a software update.

    Following a wide-scale report, Mozilla started rolling out a hotfix using its Studies system to enable the disabled extensions and as well as allow installation of new add-ons.

    Mozilla has just begun rolling out Firefox 66.0.4 with a fix for the extensions outage bug. In the release notes, Mozilla has stated that it has included the fix but a small number of add-ons may still be listed as unsupported or not appear in about:addons after the update. However, this should not be a big deal as you can re-install the extensions and the data is not lost.

    For apparent reasons, the data of add-ons such as Multi-Account Containers, Facebook Container and others that use Containers functionality cannot be recovered. You have to setup these add-ons again and login back to continue using them.

    Similarly, the themes may not be re-enabled automatically after installing this update, so you may need to re-enable them from add-ons page again. If you used add-on to customize the homepage or search settings, the customizations would reset to defaults and you may need to customize the experience again in aboutFirefox 66.0.4 released with fix for bug that disabled add-ons (extensions) :preferences or about:addons.

    Firefox Plans Bug Fix Release in a Week

    Mozilla plans to release a bug fix for its Firefox browser next week, repairing a long-standing security flaw in the software. The 2.0.0.10 update is in testing right now and should be released to the public next week, following the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. "We are giving it a couple of days to make sure that there are no issues found and we'll release it after Thanksgiving," said Mike Schroepfer, Mozilla's vice president of engineering. The issue that is to be fixed was first reported last February by Jesse Ruderman, but it gained widespread attention earlier this month when researcher Petko Petkov pointed out on his blog that the flaw could be used to launch a cross-site scripting attack against the Firefox browser. The flaw has to do with the fact that Firefox does not properly check files that are compressed using the .jar (Java Archive) format. Attackers could sneak malicious code into the Jar-compressed documents, which would then be run by the victim. Mozilla also published today the first beta of Firefox 3.
