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 Tor projects recommends it too, I wouldn't consider it that bad aslong as you don't install new stuff and turn it back on later.
