Mozilla has published initial details of what went wrong over the week-end when all add-ons were disabled due to the expiry of a certificate and what they did to quickly rectify the problem.

@sohkamyung @phoe I still would like them to just post fix so anybody can download it/verify and install themselves than just "you need to enable studies/telemetry/whatever to get the fix, but we'll be nice and delete the data". If I can' trust them to handle certificate with fixed expiration date for the second time in a row, I don't really trust them with anything anymore.
Some details on that in this companion post about the technical aspects of the outage
