Need a way to turn off add-ons (NOT one at a time, all at once!)
Since Firefox is has become such a badly broken piece of garbage and seems to require constant troubleshooting nowadays, it would be nice if you included a way to quickly disable all addons at once, not one at a time, and not having to close down and restart — just a way to turn them off so I could make sure the problem is with the web page, or with Firefox being fundamentally broken, and not with one of my small handful of addons. The easier you make troubleshooting, the more time we can spend actually browsing the web and getting our work done.
For instance, if you're trying to buy a bus ticket, as I am right now, your time is much more productively spent actually buying the bus ticket, rather than wasting hours troubleshooting Firefox to try and figure out why the bus ticket website doesn't work in firefox when it works properly in every single other browser. Being able to turn addons on and off easily would help in this. I had thought opening a private window would turn the addons off for that window so I could go about my business and just get the consarned ticket bought, but after being unable to figure out how to make that happen I did some googling and it seems this feature was helpfully removed from newer versions of firefox. That would have been a nice thing to keep. Browsers with better features are better. Worse or missing features, not as good.

The current programs don't have that option.
