    Firefox addon isues.

    Anyone else having problems with firefox addons, adblock is disabled and when trying to download a replacement i just get an error message saying download failed check your internet connections.
    Even trying to add a browser extension from other sites fails, system restore was no help.

    Same here. I suspect that having disable Adblock today, 90% of the world's Firefox users are trying to all download a replacement at the same time!

    Wasting your time trying to download any add-ons at the moment. From Mozilla:-

    Certificate issue causing add-ons to be disabled or fail to install

    Just going to have to wait for the fix. There is a work around, people can google it if they want but it leaves your system open to exploitation, particularly if people forget to reverse the workaround later on.

    I got the same issue - all of a sudden ads are everywhere and when I try to load a new ad blocker the upload fails.

    I came here looking for a solution but I guess it is just wait and see.

    As my firefox updates automatically - is there a way to roll back to an earlier version without loosing all your bookmarks Etc

    I tried system restore hoping to get an earlier Firefox version but it failed.

    Looks like a major faux pas on Mozilla's part.

    "We rolled out a hotfix that re-enables affected add-ons. The fix will be automatically applied in the background within the next few hours. For more details, please check out the update at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-ons-failing-install-firefox"

    Hopefully by the morning it'll be business as usual, but I have No Script and Video Download Helper no worky atm.
