Famous for its trustworthy service, users of Mozilla have to face a lot of problems since yesterday, And that’s because no any extensions (Add-ons) of Mozilla Firefox is working from yesterday. Due to a small mistake of Mozilla Firefox, all the Add-ons of Mozilla became Disabled together yesterday.
Mozilla Firefox, which was the first choice of users for its powerful
Add-ons, Yesterday, this powerful feature was seen as the biggest draw of Mozilla. When people of the habit of the Add-ons did not receive any Add-on’s benefits yesterday, they also found their regular work too heavy. Ad Blocker, Link Sharing and Downloading Add-ons are some of the Add-ons that have been most missed yesterday.
Why All The Add-ons Of Mozilla Firefox Gone Disabled?
As I mentioned above, all this happened because a small mistake and that mistake is a certificate issue. According to the Mozilla Firefox team, it was all due to an expired certificate that was outdated. After receiving so many complaints from a sudden, Mozilla accepts their mistake on their blog post, web forums, and social media handles. They said,
“We’re sorry that there is currently an issue where existing and new add-ons are failing to run or be installed on Firefox.” “We know what the issue is and are working hard to restore add-on functionality to Firefox as soon as possible,” also added.
In addition, Mozilla Firefox responded to many complaints on Twitter and shared full working progress from time to time.
The technical team of Mozilla Firefox is working on this problem since yesterday, although the problem is still not sorted out completely. Users are also adopting different ways for this, but no other method is proving to be completely effective. This issue also affects the Tor Browser, which supports Firefox add-ons.
In the latest update that has come up so far, they said, “A fix has been created & is circulating right now thru our Shield Studies (it will be automatically applied in the background). You can check if you have studies enabled by going to Firefox Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Allow Firefox to install and run studies. -NY.”
Although this is not a complete solution, but as long as this problem does not come to an end completely, this approach can be adopted. And once your add-ons have been re-enabled, you can disable studies again.
