noscripts gone without my knowledge

Post by Promesis » Sat May 04, 2019 6:53 am

I have been using noscripts for some time now and had no trouble. Today I started firefox and noscripts was working, some time later it stopped, the icon is gone, when I checked I noticed it was not install. So I went to the addons and tried to reinstall and got this message
"Download failed. Please check your connection.".
The scary thing is how or what uninstalled it!
I can I reinstall noscripts
Thank you, any help would be greatfully appreciated

Giorgio Maone's twitter posting about the problem:

Sorry, my extensions are working fine, I read the obviously wrong information elsewhere and made the mistake to post this without verifying it myself.

Mozilla had a technical problem that caused all extensions to be disabled and none to be installed. The problem has been fixed in the meantime.

When it is suggested that: "The problem has been fixed in the meantime" I am not clear. The problem with all Firefox extensions or the problem with NoScripts not working? How exactly has the problem been fixed since according to the timing people are still having this problem? For instance I also have just tried to re-install NoScripts for Firefox (as an extension) and also as a download and have had no luck to date. So how has "the problem" been fixed? Any clear(er) advice would be greatly appreciated...

Mozilla accidentally broke add-ons signing, see
Some hours ago they said they were testing a fix, but it doesn't seem to be deployed yet.

At this moment the safest browsing option seems TEMPORARILY switching to Chromium and installing ... cbfeoakpjm
Not exactly the same, but as a silver lining, more cross-browser beta testers won't hurt.
