Firefox isn’t allowing users to set up any of those recorded add-ons because of a certificate difficulty, Mozilla supported in a forum post. The most recent issue can also be disabling present add-ons and preventing users from allowing any installed add-ons on the browser. A significant number of consumers have reported the presence of the problem through different online platforms, such as Twitter and Reddit. But, it will not influence all Firefox users. The Firefox team is also supplying updates via its Twitter account. Even though a general repair is not yet been published, Mozilla has begun rolling out a repair with its Research system to empower installing of add-ons via a workaround.
“So sorry for the issue we’re having with add-ons right now! We’re working hard to fix it and will keep you updated,” that the Firefox staff tweeted on Saturday.
The degree of the issue impacting add-ons on Firefox appears quite wide as different complaints on Twitter, Reddit, and other social networking platforms have emerged. It will not impact all users, however.
If you are one of those users who’ve been influenced by the latest issue, you wouldn’t be able to set up any new add-ons or allow your present add-ons in the Add-ons Manager on Firefox. The matter also impacts the installing of topics on the Firefox browser.
The bug report linked to the problem reveals it is impacting all of the add-ons on Firefox because of an expired certification. Separately, via an upgraded forum article to the Mozilla Discourse system, the group has shown that it’s rolled out a repair for its overall, beta, and users of the Firefox browser to the background via its Research system.
“In order to be able to provide this fix on short notice, we are using the Studies system. You can check if you have studies enabled by going to Firefox Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Allow Firefox to install and run studies. You can disable studies again after your add-ons have been re-enabled. We are working on a general fix that doesn’t need to rely on this and will keep you updated,” the staff wrote in the updated blog.
Users now will need to use the specified method to solve the add-ons problem on Firefox. But it would appear that the overall fix would get to the browser soon too.
