What to do When Firefox Disables Installed Add-Ons

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Apparently, there’s a lot of this going around, but fortunately, there are work-arounds.

There is a lot of buzz surrounding Tuesday’s Firefox 43 release, and here specifically the enforcement of add-on signing for the first time in the stable version of the web browser. The change caught many users of the browser unprepared and might have disastrous consequences for Mozilla as users might migrate to another browser supporting their favorite extensions.


Mozilla Plans to Change How Firefox Ships in 2015

I like the part about validating new ideas with users before shipping, but the part about making changes while a browser is active kind of concerns me.

There has been one major change in past years in regards to how the Firefox web browser is developed and shipped to its users. Mozilla changed to a rapid release cycle in 2011 and has been using the model ever since. While the organization does not plan to change the six week cycle just yet, its Go Faster initiative changes how Firefox for the desktop is shipped.
