hi, i have a dozen extensions that i wouldn't mind keeping in case i want to use them sometime, though i know you're supposed to keep extensions to a minimum to avoid complications and slowness. Does disabling add-ons avoid the problems just like deleting them altogether would? thanks!

Note that Firefox 78.15.0 is the last version for your Mac OS X 10.11 platform (update channel: mozilla-mac-eol-esr1), so you will no longer receive updates.
