Are add ons safe?

I recently installed some add ons from the firefox browser, and they proved to be very useful for me. But they ask for the permission to access all the data for all the websites. This is something which scares me. Is it safe to give these add ons access to data, and then use browser for purposes like online banking.

Expecting help from your firefox team. Thanks

These extensions for Android are definitely safe, they have been reviewed by a specialist from Mozilla.

"Access all the data for all the websites" usually means access to the DOM tree, which is needed to remove ads, or do additional styling; nothing scary.
