Supposedly the fix is being deployed. I never noticed it, I guess the issue and the fix all happened while I was sleeping.

My FF distro Waterfox seems unaffected... lol so much for the devs at Mozilla on reddit that were dissing the Waterfox dev; saying stuff like how his builds are untested and how his one man show cannot match the level of QA that the normal Firefox builds are subject to.

I have normal FF as a backup and it's totally messed up by this. The fix right now seems to be to enable the remote spyware analytics so they can push an update to fix it or something like that. Since I use a hardened user.js that wont work unless I uninstall that. I think I'll just uninstall FF all together.

Your fix isn't an easy fix, and it's Windows specific. The real easy fix is to goto about:config
find

Code:
xpinstall.signatures.required
change to false.

Shouldn't you be asking yourself why your Waterfox is running expired certificates normally?
