Some problems with some certificate auto-refresh which is broken. I'll fix it.

11:12 p.m. PST: The team is currently testing a fix for this issue. In the meantime, signing of new extensions is disabled until the fix is in place.

UPD 2:
The workaround in the blog of Mozilla. The normal update is on the way.

UPD 3:
Update: Firefox developers are currently reviewing a patch that will fix this issue.

Technical details of the incident in a blog of Mozilla Hacks:

The translation of details on habré.

and it works ^^
A bad decision from the point of view of security. The normal fix is on the way. - Marilyne54 commented on March 20th 20 at 11:51
@Adalberto.Collier18, I am myself a safety inspector. I do not need much - just let FF stop telling me how to live. And security I... - Adrian94 commented on March 20th 20 at 11:54
help! - Waino_Nolan commented on March 20th 20 at 11:57
Yes, of course it all came up eventually. - kara_Ryan commented on March 20th 20 at 12:00
@Dante_Medhurst, you can already try to reset the settings, fix slowly introduced. - Marilyne54 commented on March 20th 20 at 12:03

Jeez, and I thought I'm the only one asshole with his FF 56.0 :) I have already had to switch to ESR 52.9.0 and Google a few parameters so that no one was looking for any updates:
app.update.enabled: false
browser.search.update: false
extensions.update.enabled: false

and one parameter that disables moronic test for use:
xpinstall.signatures.required: false
then draws a yellow triangle - but it works, and I should have, and this

UPD: the Night of may 7 - does not work nichrome. And I very much doubt that it was an accident - the list of victims - adblock :) That is so here in one fell swoop you knocked everyone out... And besides, there is an assumption that is made specially in order to drive people with old versions of quantum...

UPD2: one More life hack
If You have an outdated version of FF
If after you enable xpinstall.singature.required did not happen nifiga
- move all extensions from the extensions directory somewhere, run the browser. Then close the browser, move the extension back - they will all be allowed! Ridiculous shamanic action, but the problem it solves.
lol, I also FF 52.9.0 and too cut down the auto-update ))
from them flow the issues picked up at the time..
actually, it's funny how FF browser for those who fumbles (which I always saw) more and more casualities.. - stephanie commented on March 20th 20 at 11:53
@elfrieda90, Nifiga not funny - sad :( I use FF since then, he has spread archive (version 0.4 I think) and always thought it was the browser for those who understand what he wants. At one time it was when Mozilla was equally, what percentage of people use it. But there is something changed and started apophenia. Soon it will turn into another clone of chrome - as it was with Opera... :<< - Adrian94 commented on March 20th 20 at 11:56
this browser is for those who understand what he wants

And what should you?) And as the issue of the certificates has led to the logical conclusion about the similarity with chrome? - kara_Ryan commented on March 20th 20 at 11:59
@Ardith_McClure90, I need you to never taught me how to live :) That the extension suddenly stopped working just because it wanted mozille ("could not be verified for use" should be understood so). Let the browser asks me if I want to continue to use it despite the possible problems or not.
I need that the browser has not been updated independently, in that case, if there is a newer version, and I put the old - it's possible I put it purposefully. Now to put even 52.9.0 ESR you have to disable network before the first start FF before I shut the fucking updates.
I need to get out of my fucking Mosk endless comment "Your browser is outdated". Jeez, I know it! Leave me alone!
The conclusion about the similarity with chrome - it's very simple. Mozilla popsey, seeks to gain more people - that is to make the browser the way it wants to see the kettle. And the kettle need sustainence on the possibilities that have always been a great party ("other":)) he doesn't care. So Mozilla is migrating in the direction of greater convenience, the dummies with less possibilities for extension developers. A little more - and the third-party themes won't be supported - eat that give... - Adrian94 commented on March 20th 20 at 12:02
@Dante_Medhurst, so theoretically possible case that Trojan slipped his malicious browser extension. It is logical that the browser after startup, no hearing, nor spirit, that was BEFORE the launch, some expansion is already there on the disc, well they might want to check just in case. That is all this canoe is essentially designed to protect the user, and not for the infringement of his rights. I think if in the browser there is some kind of security hole, it is much stronger blow to the reputation and cause a greater outflow of users.

About the possibilities I highly doubt it. The perfect browser for me at the moment is seen as something entirely different that takes the best from FF, chrome and old оперы12. There was a time when browsers were not so much ate. Then people also complained, but they had no idea what "progress" awaits them. - kara_Ryan commented on March 20th 20 at 12:05
possible case that Trojan slipped his malicious browser extension

Possible. But it may be worth it somewhere to have a check that I agree to take full responsibility? Now we have with three floor mats to look like this test to be cut off.
And the second point - it turns out that the Mozilla Foundation at any time can fuck off in my browser all extensions? Awesome... - Adrian94 commented on March 20th 20 at 12:08
@Dante_Medhurst, and how to give at least 1% security guarantees, without the right to disable extensions?

Moreover, in developer mode you can plenty of unpacked extensions to connect because you are responsible. And what of boutiques - FF responding. And with each new upgrade expansion new responsibilities. Here are found, for example, that FastProxy - malicious extension, then right button to chop it off for all users. They actually even need to say thank you. Well, not like - you can download, unzip, and change to blue in the face. - kara_Ryan commented on March 20th 20 at 12:11
@Ardith_McClure90, yeah, and we come again to the problem of Quis custodiet ipsos custodes. That's what I had in mind when he talked about apophenia of Mozilla - it automatically says users browser users with a common user qualifications. When something was different.
And now it turns out to get rid of this excessive concern - you need to dig in the guts of about:config, set the ESR version, in some cases, Linux can not do without their own styles :) - Adrian94 commented on March 20th 20 at 12:14
@Ardith_McClure90, And by the way, so "accidentally" Mozilla disabled all adblock. Nice, right? Google howled now with envy!
On older versions I realized nothing was corrected and the right not to be - supposedly voluntarily-and prynudytelnoho all quantum? - Adrian94 commented on March 20th 20 at 12:17
@Dante_Medhurst, I don't know, I have uBlock Origin works correctly. - kara_Ryan commented on March 20th 20 at 12:20
@Ardith_McClure90, Yes I have too, not all the extensions have fallen off, fallen off adblock, noscript but survived, fell off blur, but survived fireftp :) - Adrian94 commented on March 20th 20 at 12:23
