Firefox add-ons are fucked because a signing certificate expired.

Expect all your browser add-ons to be broken until they figure out how to fix it. You didn't need that password manager or that facebook container or that ad-blocker did ya? :P

To be fair, "forgot to renew a cert" happens to all of us, sooner or later. :D

Let's have some sympathy for the bad Friday night some folks are having trying to get it fixed. <3

@brion This is affecting TBB as well. NoScript is no longer enabled there. So this could have some serious real world consequences on the order of prison or worse for some people. It's hard to feel sympathy for the folks at Mozilla right now.

@brion and the page that will get updates is error 429, too many requests

Perhaps this is a plot to become the most popular web site again :)
