Disable add-on signature enforcement in Firefox 49 and above

Starting with Firefox 48, Mozilla made the add-on signature enforcement mandatory. The user cannot disable it using the about:config flag or using any other method. Here is a hack which will allow you to bypass the requirement and install unsigned addons in the browser.

Firefox will get Load Temporary add-ons feature

As you may already know, Firefox 44 and above won't allow you to run unsigned add-ons. Mozilla developers decided to remove the ability to disable the signature enforcement, which can still be disabled in Firefox 43. However, it was announced that the stable branch of Firefox will get a new option which will allow the user to temporarily load unsigned extensions.
