Bug Description

Hi,

This is related to Firefox-next version from the Mozilla Team ppa :

https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/ubuntu/firefox-next

Steps to reproduce:

On Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, with the ppa Mozilla Firefox Next activated, updates this morning (9th July), which installed Firefox 62.0b6 64 bits.

Actual results:

At FF restart, all extensions were totally disabled. On the "Tools - Addons" pane, only the button "Remove" is possible, no way to reactive extensions.

I only use Linux, Firefox profile is in Ubuntu.

Tried to uninstall and reinstall one of the addons from Mozilla site, got the error message :

"the addon downloaded from this site could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt"

Expected results:

Webextensions should continue to work.

Other users seem impacted (see the last comments):

Getting user reports in IRC that this is affecting the PPA builds, so confirmed I guess.

I'm using the Mozilla built binaries, and all is fine.
