[7127] Firefox addon extensions do not work

Hello folks, I have been using Seven since 7000. I now have 7127.
My problem is with Firefox xpi extensions.
I have read in the past that this is a known issue with installing xpi, but do you think I can find it now

My Firefox addon extensions do not work, nor do they uninstall/reinstall.
What do I need to tweak, please...

Yeah mine used install nicely, but not now with 7127.
Using latest Firefox - does it make a difference to the problem?
Problem is with installing xpi's in general, not a specific extension.
I know there is a fix, searched but cannot locate it.

Yes royalhunter, and that don't work either.
I am sure there is a tweak to some settings that needs to be done.
