fucking firefox<
"ever one of my extensions are now showing,
"...xxxx could not be verified for use in Firefox an has been disabled"

Starting in Firefox version 57, only extensions built using WebExtensions APIs will work.

Mozilla says on the status page that a hotfix is being distributed for the release, beta, and nightly versions of Firefox. In the coming hours, it should automatically arrive at users, but they must be registered with Firefox Studies, which also enables certain telemetry. After the hotfix has been installed via Studies, Studies can be switched off again immediately.
You can find Studies with Tools>Options>Privacy and Security.
I tried the fix and it worked.
