How can I disable addons from running on certain tabs, windows, or websites, without having to create a whole new profile?
Not every potentially site-breaking addon has a site whitelist or enable/disable list. While some addons exsit for "sandboxing" tabs - it only sandboxes the pages loaded on that tab, not what the browser/addons do to them. I've already searched for solutions, and frankly, I'm surprised that this question hasn't been asked before until now: Why can't multiple "profiles" be run side-by-side, on a per-tab and/or specific-website(s) basis, in the same browser window?

What are the add-ons giving you problems, and on what web pages? What kind of problems?
Basically any addon that affects ssl settings. Not all of the extra "hardening" to ssl that addon does results in a certificate error or warning when I try to load a page. Some of them cause redirect errors or even just a blank screen with nothing loaded at all. Even if I "whitelist" a page in an addon's settings, that page could still not load because the addon has changed the browser's settings itself...
I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.
When changing ssl settings in Firefox they change for every website. It can only be done with another profile.
