Firefox 94 broken extensions
Adblockers, namely ghostery, and other extensions are broken. Some pages that adblockers would allow to load quickly take 'forever' to load - or at least far longer than I'm willing to wait - which is minutes since I try to load them in the background. Also autoplay blocking doesn't seem to work since it constantly tries to load video even though I have autoplay shut off.

Let's start with; It’s possible that there is a problem with the file(s) that store the extensions registry.
Type about:support in the address bar and press enter.
Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

Delete all extensions* files and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.
New files will be created when required.
After, restart Firefox.
