Default NoScript addon broken in Tor Browser.

I've been using Tor Browser with OpenBSD 6.5 and just noticed it saying the NoScript addon is not supported. So I tried to install another extension but it won't let me. What ever I try to add it says it can't be verified. It also says

"This add-on could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt."

So how do you add extensions to Tor Browser in OpenBSD?

Tor is a patched version of Firefox right?
Could it be possible that your issue is linked to this https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973

That would be it. Thanks. So far it is only affecting NoScript on my browser though.

I found a temporary way to reactivate NoScript here. Hope its okay to do.

Launch Firefox and hit - about:config
Search for 'xpinstall.signatures.required'
Either double click on the row OR set the value to false and close
I am not sure what the point of using Tor is though, since after testing this browser on Panopticlick it reported it as unique. Edit: Oh don't mind me, I see it improves depending on the security level.

Mozilla has an expired certificate for Firefox add-ons. It expired at 00:00 UCT Saturday morning. A "fix" for their stupidity is being rolled out now.

This made international news, and will send millions of FF users to other browsers.

It is rolled by Shield Studies/Normandy for stable Firefox builds at the moment.

Manual way to use extensions without a fix from Mozilla or Tor Browser:
