    This was first announced in February...

    When I checked for updates today, all Add-ons were updated to signed.

    That might lead to the loss of a number of Add-ons, esp. those that are issued under a Freeware license.

    This excerpt from the Mozilla link explains...

    There will be a transition period of two release cycles (12 weeks total) during which unsigned extensions will only generate a warning in Firefox.

    After the transition period, it will not be possible to install unsigned extensions in Release or Beta versions of Firefox. There won’t be any preferences or command line options to disable this.

    Installation of unsigned extensions will still be possible on Nightly and Developer Edition, as well as special, unbranded builds of Release and Beta that will be available mainly for developers testing their extensions.

    RG, HTTPS-Everywhere isn't even offered currently by AMO for v34-41 at least.
