Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.

⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️

It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.

Either follow the instructions here nixnet.xyz/ by @amolith

Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553

#Firefox

@aral @amolith Thanks, that seems to have worked. It's surprising how uncomfortable it feels surfing naked after having NoScript and ABP on as standard.

@rosjackson @amolith ABP actually makes their money from allowing trackers by companies like Google that give them millions of dollars to not be blocked. I’d highly recommend that you get uBlock Origin if you’re using Firefox.
