General Software News, Updates & Discussions / Pale Moon Auto Addon Update Disabled

In short:
Quote
  • Mozilla's server-side signing produces a manifest file that has an improper file ending, which is what is causing the immediate crash.  A point release of Pale Moon will be built and released as soon as  possible to prevent the crashes seen upon installing an extension with  this kind of signature problem. Expect 25.3.2 very soon.
  • Mozilla's  server-side signing, additionally, creates signature files that are  empty and do not list the files to check. This means that even though  the extensions have checksums in the meta data that has been added, they  are not actually tied to the included Mozilla certificate and will not be checked for authenticity at all, even in current Firefox versions. This, first assumed to be the root cause of the crash, likely does not  affect the crashes seen, but obviously will not provide any  authenticity check of the signed files inside the extension either  (since the files are not checked against mozilla's certificate)

Mozilla bug:  1158467 – Signed extensions on AMO have invalid signatures

Expect a Pale Moon update.  Full topic here:  Warning: signed add-ons crash Pale Moon
