Understatement of the month, if not the year.  And yet, on the Mozilla
blog, all the comments are "oh, you're so awesome for working on a
weekend to fix this!", completely ignoring that there wouldn't have been
a problem to "heroically" work all weekend to solve if they'd just done
things right (staying on top of cert expirations, not trying to funnel
everything through a single point of failure, etc.) in the first place.

Thanks!  The Mozilla blog just says to get the updated version, no
mention of how to install the updated cert directly.

I did still need to uninstall/reinstall my add-ons before they started
working again (I assume it would have eventually revalidated them on its
own, but I didn't have the patience to wait for that) but everything
appears normal again after doing that.  And all my settings appear to
have survived across the uninstall/reinstall cycle, even!
