Checking I find that although marked "disabled" it still works as expected. That is fine with me!

I've now seen the other thread with link to British English Dictionary (Marco Pinto) 2.67 which installs perfectly. Thanks yami_ for pointing me in the right direction.

Why downgrade using Adblock Plus? Why not use AB Latitude from the PM add-ons site?

It's ironic people are recommending CAA for alternatives and this update removed CAA. Also seemed to kill old ver of Windscribe which didn't work in PM but I didn't test further. I didn't have any web-ext but those 2 were important enough to go back to the older ver.

CAA is not a web extension so should not be removed.

All of my extensions (I only use 7 of them) work fine, but when I go to the "Extensions" part of the "Add-ons" tab, they are all listed by name with (disabled) after the extension name, although they are all working. Or is this the expected behaviour?

Thanks!
I had that same problem. Do you have the CTR extension? If so, open it up and click "Add-on manager" on the left-side menu. Then play around with those settings until things get back in line. Here's a screen shot of my CTR after I got the add-on page back to the way it was before the update: https://i.imgur.com/OmRXoBg.jpg
Thanks, that did the trick. Although I downloaded the updated CTR mentioned by Moonchild for future use if needed.

I know. It was listed in Available Updates as being removed (kind of backwards logic) and clicking Undo did nothing. Reinstalled CAA using previous Basilisk build and it stayed when I ran the new build. The other extension now works again too, just needed to logout even though it showed not logged in.
