Description

LSAC(v2)
Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. This update fixes the following bug: * Previously, due to an expired Firefox Add-on certificate, add-ons were disabled and the user could not activate them. This update provides an exception which no longer verifies the sign-off timestamp, so that an add-on signed off by the Firefox certificate is a sufficient condition. As a result, add-ons are no longer disabled due to certificate expiration. (BZ#1333368) Users of firefox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
