I've updated the switching.social poster, to make it as simple and easy to read as possible:
The idea of the poster is to go on community noticeboards, so that more people in real life realise there are alternatives to what big tech offers them.

Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.
⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️
It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.
Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: https://mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553570119536

Temp fix for Firefox Add-ons being disabled Show more
Did your #Firefox just crash and wipe disable most of your add-ons? Same!
Temporary fix that worked for me (use at your own risk):
1. Paste "about:config" in the URL bar
2. Accept the risk!
3. In the search bar on resulting page, paste
4. Click "true" so that it changes to "false". Leave it as "'false".
5. Restart Firefox

Currently, cannot tell if it's all users, but many seem to be affected.
