Firefox bug disabled all add-ons - including Adblock Plus · 2019-05-04 10:38 by Laura Dornheim
Since late Friday night, an expired certificate caused all add-ons on Firefox to be disabled.
With Adblock Plus being one of the favorite add-ons for users world-wide, this hits us hard. But we have absolute confidence in the open source community behind Firefox to get this fixed as soon as possible!
There is nothing you can or need to do, other than wait for Firefox to update, which will most likely happen automatically.
So in the meantime, stay strong when faced with a pop-up, a screaming flash-ad or an annoying banner while you browse the web.
We will soon be able to block all that for you again!
Update (May 4th, 10pm CEST): At about 4:15 CEST Firefox started to deploy an update that fixed the issue with the expired certificate, so by now all your add-ons should function again.
If you still have issues with Adblock Plus on Firefox, post a comment or reach out to us on Twitter.
Update (May 5th, 6pm CEST): It seems the fix from Firefox is not working for all. Here are three things you can try:
1. For some users, downloading Adblock Plus through our website adblockplus.org works.
*2.*You could check also Mozillas latest blogpost for possible measures that bring your add-ons back.
*3.*Last but not least: Adblock Plus works smoothly and blocks all annoying ads on Chrome, Safari and Opera!
