mold or fungus I think

Fig    None Given

A fuzz appears all at once after my figs start to ripen. If I find it in time and remove the fuzzy ones i can get some good figs but if i miss a day of removing the infected fruit all is lost. Overnight every ripe fig is fuzzy.

Are they possibly over ripe?

In my opinion your fig tree is getting to much water. This tree need very low water to ripen properly.

The tree is over 20' tall and just as wide. I cannot move it and do not water it. It gets full morning sun and by 3 or 4 only diffused sunlight. It is too large to move. Would removing the sun obstruction for afternoon sun be an option ?

Lucia Anna Carbone commented,
I think your problem may be due to a wet spring- summer and/ or very hot day alternate with wet days, this can improve mold problems. I suggest you to remove the mold fig as soon as you see them and to Harvest your figs not fully ripen so you can eat some. Please be very carefull because there are a lot of fungi infections which can develop some toxic compounds such as aflatoxins, micotoxins ETC, http://www.fupress.net/index.php/pm/a...
