How about one of you knowledgeable folks posting a step-by-step procedure for fixing this. Give it a subject like 'step-by-step fix for extensions'
How about trying to live your life without any Add-Ons? It's time to get used to using Apps without any Add-Ons.

Add-Ons can introduce bugs and malware because nobody has the time to look at their codes and scrutinise them. Therefore, to be safe avoid them.

I was using only one Add-On called ColorZilla but that had stopped working but it is not the end of me using FF, In any case I wasn't actually dependent on that Add-On so I'm not missing it. In fact I didn't realise it has stopped working until I saw spam posts talking about Add-Ons here and on Windows 10 Newsgroup. I have now filtered all posts about this crap on Windows because it is generating hundreds of useless posts.

The ONLY addon that I really use is Roboform and I can work around that, it is just a PITA to do so.

How do YOU manage passwords without using the cloud?

FF and TB has got its own password manager. Also, I try not to have anything in TB or FF and I keep a text file with my passwords which only I can understand it because is os all jumbled up DELIBERATELY. I have about 90 usernames/passwords in this text file but it requires lots of work and intelligence for someone trying to decrypt it!!
