Did this problem also affect Android versions of Firefox?  Presumably it

version on my tablet but only had UBlock Origin on it anyway.
Speaking of which, what should I have noticed?


I was using an Android tablet abroad when it happened. I read
  about the fault but none of my addons ever stopped working. When
  I looked at 'about:addons' it said 'could not be verified' IIRC -
  I didn't investigate carefully- but they were never disabled. I
  just assumed it didn't affect Android.

Later my phone disabled some addons, like ADB, Stylus - the others
  were probably my own loaded from local files. I can't explain the
  differing behaviour.

Must say I'm glad I wasn't using my Windows machine when the add-ons were disabled, even if it was only for a short time.
