You need to improve your google-fu, as they released an updated version of FF last night, and prior to that, there were several different ways to get FF to re-enable the extensions, from rolling back your system clock, to disabling checking extension signatures, to allowing FF to track you (which also permits downloading a new certificate).

I believe FF put out a new version for the mainline, and for ESR. Don't know about other browsers based on the Mozilla source code.

It has been going on for several months but has been resolved, at least on mine. I had lost McAfee Webadvisor and Adblock plus but they are now back. Did you follow this procedure for Mozilla/Firefox?
Click on:
Tools
Options
Privacy & Security
Scroll down to Firefox Data Collection and Use
Place check mark in these boxes:
*Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla
*Allow Firefox to run studies
*Allow Firefox to make personalized extension recommendations
Once you have done this close your browser then reopen it and the extensions should start working again; once they are working you can uncheck these boxes if you prefer.
Good luck.

That's ok Rude, I would just use FF all the time but for some reason after about 10/12 hrs of use it bogs down to a crawl if I shut it down and restart it works again for a time

Thanks. Oh wow, FF slowing down after extended use is well above my pay grade for sure. What os are you using? I had some issues with using the hardware acceleration and unchecked it which helped.
Here are some articles that may or may not help you:

Yeah Firefox used to (at least for me on MacOSX) periodically decide to expand it's memory footprint until my computer would run out of VM, and I would have to notice before the computer got too sluggish and quit FireFox, or else I would have to force-reboot the computer.

But it's been more than a year since it's happened to me using Firefox.

I had the same issue with Firefox on my Apple computers and finally gave up and I went back Safari. Never had any issues with Safari and dumping Firefox was not something I wanted to do but the issues finally caught up with so bad that I switched over.
