SSD prices have never been lower!

The NAND flash industry (the companies that make the storage part of SSDs) have been in massive competition in 2019. There is a massive oversupply of flash memory to built SSDs out of. Because of that, the price per GB of a SSD (Solid State Device) has fallen below $0.1 per GB.

We have purchased many SSDs under $50 for a 512GB drive. Prices for SSDs have fallen by over half since last year. Prices on SSDs have been falling dramatically over the last one and half years.

If you have been waiting to purchase a large SSDs until prices fall further you should probably purchase them today. There are market signals showing that the NAND flash industry is trying to correct the oversupply. Additionally there has been a lot of consolidation of manufacturers and end suppliers of SSDs to try to stabilize the price reductions.

SSD prices can’t get much lower, so if you want a large drive, get it today.

If you need help upgrading to an SSD or cloning your existing small SSD onto something larger give a call to Chandler Computer Repair Company at (480) 240-2946.

Firefox glitch kills all extensions

Did you just notice that none of your extension in Mozilla Firefox are working? We have seen multiple clients have issues with the new update where all Firefox extensions are automatically being disabled.

According to Firefox’s Bugzilla bug tracker users started having issues almost immediately after the latest updated was pushed live.

There does not seem to be much you can do since the extensions are being listed as legacy extensions due to verification issues. Non-verified legacy extensions are disabled by default and there is no method other than verifying them to enable them. The glitch appears to be part of that verification system (specifically with the certificates) so no extensions are able to be verified.

Expect Mozilla to release a new version of Firefox soon as this is a massive bug.

Update after the fact: Firefox hotfix patch to fix extension glitch

Mozilla just launched (a day later) Firefox 66.0.4 which resolves the verification certificate issue that disables all extensions.

If you cannot resolve the issue, give us a call at (480) 240-2946 and we can help you get your Firefox extensions working properly.
