The last webkit (or other) updates pushed last night completely
disables all existing extensions in Firefox 60.6.1esr.

U-Block Origins is now disabled
NoScript is now disabled
Copy to Plain Text is now disabled

What gives? What exact rpm was the culprit. Don't you think if you are
going to push an update that will break all extensions in Firefox --
there should be reasonable notice? When and how is this going to be

no, it was not updates. firefox has security certs problem and
deliberately disabled extensions until they solved the problem. should be
ok now or shortly as they found or achieved a solution.

Thank God:

Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR), Firefox Developer Edition and Nightly
versions of Firefox will allow you to override the setting to enforce the
extension signing requirement, by changing the preference

xpinstall.signatures.required to false

in the Firefox Configuration Editor (about:config page). There are also
special unbranded versions of Firefox that allow this override. See the
MozillaWiki article, Add-ons/Extension Signing for more information.
