Missing Some Firefox Add-Ons? Don't Panic!

If you've noticed some Firefox Add-ons missing all of the sudden, this is because there's a bug in the latest Firefox update. Your add-ons aren't gone, though, so don't worry. They're still operating — you just can't see them.

While Mozilla puts together a fix for the issue, they have paused Firefox updates. When the bugs are squashed and a patch is ready, updates will resume. So just be patient for now and things should be back to normal in due course.

    constant updates might seem nice from some people's perspective, but personally I switched to firefox for add ons, This can customise my experience. now I cant use many of the ones I did before... Now I install 3.6 on new installs...

    Adblock plus vanished for me, but I noticed precisely because it wasn't working - Who knew the internet was so full of ads?

    I'm using the latest version (7) and everything is working fine. I suggest if you like firefox to download it manually on the main website. I think I'm finally switching back to FF from Chrome because Chromes memory usage and handling is pathetic in comparison.

    Multi Row Tabs was not compact able when I was trying to move from 5.0 to 6. SO I never upgraded.

    Unfortunately, NoScript plain stopped working. It is definitely not a case of "still operating — you just can’t see them".

    See here for a fix:
