Did this problem also affect Android versions of Firefox? Presumably it
should have, but I missed all this turmoil because I was away and not
using my Windows machine. Never noticed anything amiss in the Android
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
general mailing list
