I'm sure those that need to know, know, but for those that haven't heard[1] 
Mozilla's official Firefox build will enforce addons to contain a Mozilla signature 
without any runtime option to disable the check.

Initially this prevents Fedora packaged addons since they are unsigned. The Mozilla 
signing process takes time and can't be part of a package building process.

Is Fedora going to get authorization to build Firefox with a runtime disable option?
