Since the 52.x line is legacied, I doubt any security or any other updates will be coming along anyway, except for an errant cert "fix" or so :-) So, as long as I don't install any other add-ons, I expect I'm as good as I'm going to get with that release version.

The certificate problem was caused by a certificate expiring, not by any update to Firefox itself - although obviously a previous update to FF imposed that requirement in the first place. They are releasing updates to fix this mess: One on Saturday (fixed it for some people), one on Sunday (fixed it for some more, including ESR and Android). More is still to come. The product manager for add-ons said "In particular, please do not delete and/or reinstall any add-ons as an attempt to fix the issue".

Yes, that is my understanding, as well. My 'errant cert "fix"' comment should have been encapsulated in [sarcasm] tag.


Now I'm confused. Are your add-ons back to life on v52 ESR or not, because mt 52.9.0 is still jacked after trying the xpinstall.bla FALSE and hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx...

I had few add-ons on my Fx52.9 and Ghostery was the only one that had been disabled. After setting the pref to'false' and restarting Fx, Ghostery was re-enabled.

fscking thing even teased me by showing "Classic Theme Restorer will be enabled after restart" then shuffled it off to disabledland after the restart.

All my browsers at home are jacked.

I foolishly* opened my work browser today because Moz said the problem had been resolved.
Surprise, surprise. it's still broke.

(*without first backing up the profile, doh...)

I hope you find a solution to getting yours back, I've never quite recovered from losing a bunch after XPCOM/XUL was desupported after Fx28.
