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?

I let Firefox do it.  I also keep a text file.  Good enough.
