Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.

⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️

It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.

Either follow the instructions here nixnet.xyz/ by @amolith

Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553

#Firefox

@aral At the very bottom, I actually list that as a fix 😅 I do make sure to tell users to set it to true again after a day or two.

@amolith I think that will do more harm than good. Even tech savvy folks could forget.

@aral @amolith Case in point: I set that earlier, and forgot to change it back!
