All add-ons & theme disabled on Firefox ???

I was having multiple tabs & windows on my browser, all of a sudden I got an yellow notification stating some of the add-ons I use are no longer updated & they have been disabled.


when I went to check legacy section, each & every one of my add-on has been deactivated & when I tried to download the add-on from the add-ons page, it says constantly check my connection. Some of the plugins include No Script, Bitdefender Wallet - both are available on the addon sections still what am I missing here



What exactly is happening ? I'm also running a scan on my system, currently to check if I've been infected, the chances are pretty slim.

never mind.. found the problem when I browsed mozilla support forums. Here's the link to the topic, in case others are having issues too - Certificate issue causing add-ons to be disabled or fail to install - Announcements - Mozilla Discourse

it was a big screwup on Mozilla's part due to expiring certificates.
they had to release two minor releases of Firefox to fix the problem (should be completely fixed with versions 60.6.3 ESR, 66.0.5 and 67.0 beta 18)

Mozilla has also written an "apology" blog about the disabled addons/themes problem here:
