Are all add-ons third party?
I am required by my new job to disable/remove all third-party add-ons. Is there a way to discern which add-ons are third party and which are not? Are all add-ons third party? Please advise. Thanks!

hello girliegig, yes the absolute majority of addons is coming from third-party developers. mozilla is developing/providing a few extensions itself though (mainly dictionary packs): https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/user/mozilla/
Extensions and Themes hosted at addons.mozill.org goes through a review process.
The word Addons does not refer to just Extensions as it also groups together Themes (both complete and background images aka Personas) , Plugins, and even dictionary, language packs, search engines are included.
