You have got to recognize Mozilla for their consistency in running a shit show: not only do they forget to renew certificates and make all users see their extensions disabled, but their main page says nothing about the issue: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/?redirect_source=firefox-com - you need to go on "fix a problem" to see a minuscule banner that hardly gives any information and points to a URL without a proper link. So much incompetence is amazing! #mozilla #shitshow

Just as Riot started to do now, F-Droid has always signed all its apps on an inaccessible, offline machine. For more information, see https://riot.im/reinstall
To avoid maintenance overhead, however, it's likely to happen that F-Droid users must also change the app in near future. Still, there's no need to act now.
