On May 4 2019 the web browser Mozilla Firefox started to show a warning message “One or more installed add-ons cannot be verified and have been disabled” and all installed browser extensions were all disabled. This created some panic within Firefox users and myself too, as I found all my Firefox extensions disabled without an option to re-enable them.
A workaround that works
Mozilla is working on a fix and should release a new Firefox version hopefully in a few hours. Meanwhile, there are a few possible workarounds that may work for Firefox users.
Here is a workaround I have tested and seems to work fine:
1 – Close Firefox process (firefox.exe)
2 – Browse to the Firefox profile folder:
Replace PCUSER with your PC username and xxxxxxxx with your Firefox profile.
3 – Edit the file extensions.json with Notepad++ or Notepad
4 – Replace all instances of “appDisabled”:true with “appDisabled”:false
5 – Replace all instances of “signedState”:-1 to “signedState”:2
6 – Save the file and start Firefox
7 – Disable and re-enable all extensions in about:addons
The real solution
You will of course need to update to a newer version of Firefox when available.
