For the people who use Firefox with add-ons/extensions, you are not the only one experiencing problems. A lot of Firefox users had all of their extensions/add-ons disabled last night.
Including me. 😡
I use Firefox for casual browsing and one minute I was fine, the next, not so much. The absense of my Extensions breaks my Firefox (and Chrome, etc.). For me it's like having a smart phone without apps.
Here's the message from Firefox:

I think the best thing for people to do is either switch to a different browser or try to follow the workaround instructions. I don't recommend the workaround unless you are confident with tweaking browsers. For those that want to try, here's the link:
There are lots of browsers to chose from if you want to switch: Chrome, Edge, Brave, Opera, Waterfox, Vivaldi etc. I'm using Chromium right now. I'm not thrilled with it, but it's what I have. I'm going to experiment with Waterfox later today.
