    disabled add-ons in Firefox Pre 66.0.4

    Hallo community,
    I wounder if somebody has some information about the pending update process of Firefox version 66.0.3 to version 66.0.4 in fc30. Since the update to Firefox version 66.0.3 most of my add-ons in Firefox are disabled because of the already well known certificate-bug and I'm waiting for the update 66.0.4 where the bug is fixed.
    Greetings2all & thx for fedora, yours hu

    On my Firefox I set

    xpinstall.signatures.required
    In about:config

    To "false" and that fixed mine. I just need to switch it back when we get a new rpm

    THX mako for sharing this work-around! Solved my problem. I hope not to forget to switch back after the next firefox update in the fedora fc30 repository.

    Its hard to forget, the add-ons are flagged with bright colored text that I think says something like "signature could not be confirmed, proceed with caution"

    huscape:

    make sure you set xpinstall.signatures.required back to the usual "true" value
    after you update to 66.0.4-1 Firefox
