    Mozilla is aware of a bug that disables all Firefox add-ons (extensions)


    Users are reporting that a bug has disabled all Firefox add-ons (also known as extensions) and Mozilla has acknowledged the problem with its systems. The bug causes the Firefox browser to display an error message “One or more installed add-ons cannot be verified and have been disabled” above the extensions.

    All popular extensions such as Dark Mode, LastPass, Ghostery, and others are affected due to the Firefox glitch. A Bugzilla post suggests that the problem is associated with the incorrect extension certificate signing. It means that Firefox extensions that are due signing have been marked as unsupported. In other words, extensions have been due to the expiration of intermediate signing cert.

    “Yep, this just happened to me too. What sucks is that the only addon I was using was Ublock Origin, and that is listed as a FEATURED EXTENSION. I really don’t want to go back to Chrome (or Edge, God forbid),” a user wrote in a Reddit post.

    Another user revealed that Firefox also won’t let users re-download anything. If you try to re-download the affected extensions, you may receive a generic message that says the download has failed and check your internet connection.

    Fortunately, a Reddit user has discovered a workaround to deal with the Firefox’s extensions glitch.

    Fix extension could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled error

    1. In the regular build of Firefox, go to about:debugging.
    2. Check the box to let Firefox start debugging the add-ons.
    3. Click ‘Load Temporary Add-On’
    4. Browse to your Firefox profile in appdata:
    5. C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<example text>.default\extensions
    6. In the extensions folder, you will find .xpi files.
    7. These files are actually the extensions that you had
    8. Load the extensions manually, but the extension may stop working if you close or restart Firefox.

    The above workaround is working for many users and it could temporarily address the problem.

    Mozilla is aware of the reports


    In a Twitter thread, Mozilla acknowledged the Firefox extensions outage and the company said that an issue with a certificate may have disabled your add-ons. The engineers at Firefox is actively investigating the problem and preparing a fix to address the issue.

    “It’s been about two hours since we became aware of the certificate issue. No new updates at this time other than the team is still working on a fix,” the company said.
