Mozilla released Firefox version 7.0.1 today, for both the desktop and mobile browsers, and followed up shortly with a support article regarding the handling of Add-ons. A workaround is available and Mozilla is working on an update for Firefox. One of our readers, Dave, submitted this:
Weve identified an issue in which some users may have one or more of their add-ons hidden after upgrading to the latest Firefox version, affecting both desktop and mobile. These add-ons and their data are still intact and havent actually been removed. We paused new updates to Firefox to minimize the potential impact on users and will soon release an update to fix this issue and ensure all your add-ons are visible and usable.
