Is there an extension that will STOP FireFox from asking me "allow this extension to run in private windows?"

Every time I install an extension, FireFox asks me if I want to "allow this extension to run in private windows?" The answer is YES, the answer has always been yes, and it always WILL BE YES, so how do I set it to default on yes?

I also need an extension to block DEVELOPER POP-UP windows from newly installed or updated extensions. I have 4 pop-up blockers installed, but they all seem to bypass it.

Firefox forum is only for firefox browser help not for Addon issues if you need to find what Addon to use you should search online for addons that your asking about.

People are certainly welcome to ask for help on Extension suggestions on doing something in Firefox or for help on using an extension in Firefox. This forum is not only for support of default Firefox installs only as you think.
