    Same here with ESR, manually setting the time back is a short term solution though so it appears to be a bug they'll need to fix.

    I launched Firefox 66.0.3 on Fedora 29 today, and Firefox disabled all my extensions. I received a message stating that Firefox no longer supports them. I had Ublock Origin, Privacy Possum, Canvas Blocker, and Plain Text extension installed. They have all been disabled by Firefox now. This is crazy! If Mozilla is going to be that aggressive then they will block everything soon.

    Searched with Chrome ....
    Threads read.... waiting....
    Apart from the serious nature of the system failure, some of the comments in the thread
    "Wow, so many adds on the internet"
    "Advertisements: My eyes, My eyes"
    Heh.

    Er: how will we know when the certs are back ??

    When the extensions work, I guess.

    Or, if you have the "don't require signing" option set, when the "not signed" warning disappears.

    Bam! Firefox just closed and now the extensions are disabled. Guess I'll have to use Chrome until this stupid oversight by Mozilla gets corrected.
