Comment: so I can't customize other extensions to my liking (Score 1) 196

It heppens that an extension does not install because the firefox version does not match.
The only thing not OK is the developer not having submitted a new file where the version is changed.
I usually unpack the extension, change the firefox version and repack it again.
And it works flawlessy.
Now, with signing, this will probably be impossible.

Pinning firefox in apt ...

You can also ask any cryptoexpert. There are ways to crypt and also have decrypting by court order only.
PKI plus public key of authorities, decryptable by 2 keys. government decrypt key is owned by multiple people so decrypting without court order is difficult
Won't work for OTR obviously
