Website developer want the list of my extensions to reproduce the issue on their site. I am having more than 30 extensions and i doubt they will be able to reproduce it. Since developers not yet made disabling plugins easy (like opening a single tab in debug window, easily disable half of plugins in that window. See what happen. Quickly enable these back without manually selecting each one. And disable other half) it is not easy to find addon that is causing the issue.

Ideas: 1. at about:support page i can copy the list of extensions, but the developer would have to waste their time installing each one manually. Then they will be missing my extensions settings lowering the chance to reproduce even more. 2. Can i somehow export all my extensions and their settings so developers can easily apply it? I mean the way so i can be confident i do not supply them any sensitive data of the extensions. 3. other idea please?

There are a few potential solutions to help you debug and record how your extensions are affecting certain tabs in Firefox and share that information with the website developer:

One option is to use a tool like "Extension List Dumper 2" to export a list of your extensions to a text file. This add-on can be installed from the Firefox add-ons website and allows you to quickly export a list of your installed extensions with their version numbers, descriptions, and other details. You can then send this file to the developer to help them understand what extensions you have installed.

Another option is to use a browser profile manager to create a new Firefox profile with a clean slate of extensions and settings. This can help you isolate the problem and determine which extension is causing the issue. You can then provide the developer with a list of the extensions you had installed in the original profile, along with any relevant settings or preferences.

You can also use the Firefox browser console to monitor and log errors or warnings that may be caused by your extensions. This can help you identify which extension is causing the issue and provide more detailed information to the developer.

If you have access to a virtual machine or a separate computer, you can try installing Firefox with your current extensions and settings on that machine. This will provide a clean environment for the developer to work with and may help them to reproduce the issue more easily.

Overall, the key is to provide the developer with as much information as possible about your extensions and their settings, while also being mindful of any sensitive data that may be included. By using one or more of the above methods, you should be able to provide the developer with the information they need to reproduce and fix the issue you are experiencing.
