In case it's not understood I'm seeing a rash of reports of this across
mozilla and freenode IRC networks as well as reddit.

Many people are very angry and it seems to be growing.

We don't yet know how broadly affected the user base is.
This seems like an urgent matter we want to get fixed as quickly as
at a high cost if necessary.

We do. All users with add-ons and remotely accurate system clocks are
affected, with the possible exception of nightly/dev edition users with
signing disabled.

I searched for "xpinstall.signatures.required" in about:config and
changed it from "true" to "false".  All now seems to be well, the add-on

Firefox version, I have no idea it it will work on newer ones. YMMV.

supposedly the certificate is now good and "jumping thru hoops" should not
now be necessary, ymmv
