    Firefox Add-On Failure Hot Fix

    After some digging, found this:

    If clicking on the hotfix link does not work, copy and past it to a new tab.

    Warning: I'm not a computer expert. Use at your own risk.
    .
    Hotfix Link: https://storage.googleapis.com/moz-f...0.2-signed.xpi

    Why not just post a link to the fix that can be installed WITHOUT enabling Studies? This sounds like a clever plan to get more people to share their data via Studies…
    The fix in question can be installed by clicking this link [1]. It’s signed by Mozilla.
    Thanks to user gpm at Hacker News, who posted this tip [2].

    Hey ConeBone, hoping you see this here since your comment is marked as dead.
    The .xpi has already fixed the problem permanently (I think). You can just leave it, or if you want you can uninstall it now just as a matter of cleanliness. I'm linking to this comment about how to uninstall because I'm not satisfied with my solution and I'm hoping someone will contribute a better one: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19827428
    You can see the addon in about:support, but it doesn't give you a way to uninstall it, just see that it is installed.

    in my case I had to copy the link and paste into a fresh tab as clicking actually caused firefox (nightly) to block the install with a message: "news.ycombinator.com - Nightly prevented this site from asking you to intsall software on your computer"

    Here's what Firefox says. Disregard the stuff about substitutions for legacy addons for the time being. Apparently, most of the addons that failed are current, not obsolete.

    I don't know if this applies to the thread but I wouldn't want to go back to regular browsers, even Firefox which use to crash all the time with me.

    If you installed the hotfix, and you want to see evidence of what you installed,
    enter about:support in your address window. Scroll down to Extensions and see
    hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate.
