Make a mistake once, thatís a shame. Make a mistake twice, thatís your shame.

I wasn't affected, have 52.9ESR. Was the bug only for Quantum?

No, and your not being affected surprises me. I'm still a XUL junkie, too, and came back here to ask if anyone was backporting the fix to 52.9, or whether any of the forks have implemented the fix. Adblock Plus, Classic Theme Restorer, and Tab Mix Plus still aren't working for me, and I need them back! Reinstall attempts keep saying "This add-on could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt."

I have over 40 XUL extensions, and I'm fine. I think I should wait another 10 years before switching to Quantum. ;-)

During the hubbub, I found a link to a fix for this, and installed it. Could this be interfering with the final fix? Should I uninstall it? Did anyone else here install this? Bottom line, what can I do to get my extensions working without having to upgrade from 52.9?

Does that add-on so-called fix on that page you shared not work for you? Have you tried enabling Studies for a while to try and get your add-ons back?

I don't use Firefox, but my parents do and I had to enable studies and eventually all two of their add-ons were working again. Albeit, I keep their browser updated. I'm actually considering putting them back on Pale Moon since I moved them to FF just so that my mom could use asinine Facebook without issues in PM. But now that my mom got with the program and just got a marketer's wet dream come true "smartphone", she primarily uses that for Facebook. After the add-ons came back I disabled studies and took the advice of svnfrms2r in post #3.

You may be SOL as Firefox ESR 52.9 EOL was August 29th 2018 according to this link.

Firefox ESR 52.9.0 EOL: Drop dead date | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support

You may have to upgrade to Firefox ESR 60.6.2 .

I found this fix on github for older FF versions.
https ://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/60916#issuecomment-489793388

I quote the post to which the link refers to::

Just wanted to throw this fix out there since I am on an older version of Firefox 56.0.2 which does not currently have a fix. You can manually import the certificate found in the xpi. To do this you will want to download the xpi from the below link possibly with another browser like IE if you ware having trouble.
https:// storage.googleapis.com /moz-fx-normandy-prod-addons/extensions/hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate@mozilla.com-1.0.2-signed.xpi
Rename as .zip or open with a zip program.
Navigate to experiments\skeleton and open api.js in a text editor.
Copy everything inside quotes after let intermediate = " until the next "
Create a new text file in notepad and add the certificate header/trailer like so and paste the value in between.

-----END CERTIFICATE-----
Rename the file extension to .crt
In Firefox navigate to Options -> Privacy & Security -> Certificates -> View Certificates -> Authorities -> Import...
It will show up under Mozilla Corporation as signingca1.addons.mozilla.org
I haven't tested this yet, I am about to reboot my computer into windows7 in a few minutes and try it.

Update
Now I have tested it.
I extract the api.js file from the suggested file and I followed the instruction.
I added the certificate in Firefox as described.
I restarted my Firefox (my version is 59.0.3) and I can now add add-on via mozilla's website and all add-ons work.
and the certificate shows mozilla as the publisher and has the right SHA fingerprints
