Hey, #Firefox-using friends—
If you lost access to your add-ons this past weekend and you tried some advice to set `xpinstall.signatures.required` to `false` in `about:config`, you should
1. install the latest update, and
2. flip that setting back to `true`.
It's important to have this setting on to help protect you against malicious extensions.
(Don't @ me about whether you personally need or want Mozilla to sign the extensions you use. Consider this toot may not be for you.)
Last time I checked (yesterday) the change hadn’t made it to the Ubuntu repos yet, but I’m using the Studies hack instead.
The studies hack is working for me at the moment. As long as it lasts until the update reaches me, I’m good.
