The diagnosis in the OP's message may be false, but there is most
definitely a widespread FF issue (or was, maybe fixed now). It affected
me and numerous others.

Simple temporary fix is to browse to "about:config" and change the
value for "xpinstall.signatures.required" to false. Well, that worked
for me, anyway. When Mozilla fixes whatever the issue is, I'll set it
back to true. 

BTW it hit at midnight UTC,so different people saw the effect at
different times depending on their timezone.
