How to customize privacy protection with add-ons?
It's the first time I am using FireFox! Seriously. For long years I've been an avid Opera and then Vivaldi fan, unfortunately, recently Vivaldi started to become even less compatible with many sites, and I personally started to think more about security and privacy in the Web. I've found that many tech sites recommend using new FireFox as it is as fast as is configurable with its add-ons. That said, I've found this list of 13 add-ons that would help secure my privacy:
Unfortunately, I am no IT wizard, but a simple user, and I cannot tell if I should istall all 13 of them? Or maybe the overlap in some usages? And futhermore, should I add an addblocker to it?
I would appreciate all the info and help you guys provide :) Thank you in advance.

I'm using only uBlock Origin and Multi-Account Containers, but your needs may be different than mine.
Before you consider installing an add-on, maybe you'd like to read this first :
Thank you guys for your feedback. The first guide from McCoy is especially helpful! Cheers
Since you only just now started using Firefox (and you're gonna love it !) - if you have anymore questions : just ask away !
Note that disabling specific settings via modifying prefs directly on the about:config page is entirely at your own risk as this can easily break websites.
Firefox shows the shield icon at the left end of the location/address bar in case Content Blocking is blocking content.
- click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection
You can check the Web Console about what content is blocked
- "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer
