Fedora 38 FF 112.0.1
Malwarebytes & Privacy Badger appear not to be working, though shown as 'enabled' in 'Extensions'. No blocked content is indicated. Adverts appear on lse.co.uk which can cause all four CPU's on Intel i5 to hit hi 90%. This problem appears to have started in this release.
Have disabled Privacy Badger and installed Adblocker Ultimate. This seems to have cleared the problem and Malwarebytes Browser Guard is now reporting results. Can't see how to mark problem as fixed??
A further observation which may be related to this problem. Response time seems very sluggish on FF 112.0.1
I have re-enabled both Privacy Badger & MalwareBytes and disabled Adblocker Ultimate. Both appear to be functioning now.
I have noticed that the WebExtensions process can consume as much and sometimes double the CPU & memory resource as that needed for the Firefox process. Is this to be expected? Do I need these extra security features, or are they built-in to the browser anyway?

Recently we have received numerous reports about Malwarebytes. Instead of Adblocker Ultimate you can try out uBlock Origin, it's much lighter.
I tried uBlock Origin as you suggested. It works perfectly.
Thanks for your help.
