LP linux Firefox addon stopped working, can't reinstall

Postby HippoMan » Sat May 04, 2019 4:00 pm

The LastPass add-on to my linux Firefox browser suddenly stopped working today (May 4, 2019).
The addon is now flagged as follows: "LastPass: Free Password Manager could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled."

I went to the Firefox download site and tried to reinstall. I get the error "Download failed, check your connection".

I went to the LastPass download site to try to install LastPass, and I get the same error.

My connection is fine. I am able to use Firefox to go to dozens of other sites with no problem.
Furthermore, I can go to the lastpass.com site via Firefox with no problem.

I then pulled down this file: lastpass_password_manager-4.27.2.10-fx.xpi
(via this URL: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/2009737/lastpass_password_manager-4.27.2.10-fx.xpi?src=dp-btn-primary)

I manually tried to install this from disk via Firefox's addon manager, but I get the following error:
"This addon could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt".

This problem started for me at approximately 3:00 PM, Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-5) on May 4.
Numerous other Firefox users have started reporting the same problem.

The following post (below) describes a fix. I missed it initially:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=331365#p1110235

This fix works.

I'm leaving this message here, in case others might find it helpful.

I can confirm that the above fix works. Enable the 'studies' option in privacy options.
