There is a bug that has caused all extensions to become disabled:

A temporary workaround:

- Navigate to about:debugging
- Click the 'Load Temporary Add-on' button
- Navigate to the .xpi file in your profile directory select it and open it.

Or just download the extensions you want from addons.mozilla.org/:

- Right click on the 'Add to Firefox' button
- Choose 'Save Link As' from the menu
- Save the .xpi file somewhere handy
- Open it using the above technique.

To find your profile directory and extensions .xpi files:

On Windows:
C:\Users\{your username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{profile id}.default\extensions

On Linux:
~/.mozilla/firefox/{profile id}.default/extensions/

On MacOS:
~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/{profile id}.default/extensions

@measlytwerp I switched to Waterfox months ago.

Palemoon and Basilisk also exist if you're (like me) bent on something not-webkit based. Otherwise, Falkon or Chromium depending on how much you hate the Big G.

@gentoorebel I am so..

Is Waterfox kept up to date with mainline Firefox? I remember hearing that one of the derivatives has fallen way behind but I can't remember which one.

And I can't live without my bleeding edge web tech!

@measlytwerp in terms of security updates and protocol updates, yes. It does not have mainline firefox features like container tabs or the like, but it does still support the XUL-style addons that were deprecated with FF Quantum.

Palemoon forked from FF so long ago (2009!) that it can't be considered a proper 'fork' anymore; it is its own project with a common ancestor.
