Firefox certificate

I think I've been hit by this Firefox mess:

<a href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973" title="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973">https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973</a>

or at least all the extensions in Firefox were just now disabled by an
incredible coincidence. I know it's a Saturday and a public holiday
weekend in a few countries, but does anyone know if there could be a
fix coming? (I checked Koji already.)

Rich.

If you have studies enabled (the default I think) then there is
a hotfix that should have rolled out.

Check if you have "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" ticked
on the Privacy and Security tab in the settings, and if you do then
use the view link there to see if the two studies related to that bug
are enabled.

Right now that is the only fix I think - there isn't a code fix yet
so any talk about a Fedora update is premature.

See now why it was an absolutely horrible idea to allow the Fedora Firefox
package to reject extensions not signed by upstream?

I still strongly believe that such a restriction is inherently incompatible
with the concept of Free Software and absolutely unacceptable in a Free
Software distribution such as Fedora.

Mine all came back in the last few minutes so that should work as it rolls out.
