This is *not* about the addons-meggadon from May. Like everyone else, I experienced that, I "enabled studies" at the time, and everything was fixed.
When starting Firefox yesterday (September 18 I believe), it opened with all my bookmarks gone, all my browsing history vanished, and my most important addons disabled (adblock plus, dark reader, foxy proxy). Everything was working fine before. I did not do any manual updates, and I don't think FF did an automatic update recently (but I might not have noticed). I currently have FF 69.0.1 (64-bit)
By "browsing history" I mean when I start typing into the addressbar, it used to suggest my most commonly visited sites, now it does not.
I managed to reload the bookmarks from a backup using the normal bookmarks restore feature. The browsing history is not a big deal (but does seem to indicate that some serious reset took place).
The addons are key to me, I really want to fix this. They are still listed in the add-ons manager, but are marked as "disabled". There is no enable button.
At first I thought it was a reprise of the old problem from May 2019. So I double-checked: studies are enabled, and I can see completed studies that seem to indicate the fix was done.
Based on an old post here from rcr1959 I tried going to about:config and setting extensions.signer.hotfixed to false. This didn't resolve the problem, so I put it back to true (i.e., how I found it).
There was some suggestions that a master password might cause problems, or profiles. I don't use a master password, and have never set up a profile. Under about:profiles, I see "Profile: default" and no others. There is an option to "Restart with Add-ons disabled" and another to "Restart normally". I tried the second one; it restarted fine but the add-ons are still disabled.

Firefox 69.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10.
Web applications (such as Hangouts) that have an option to select a different sound output do not work. All that is available is "System Default Speaker Device". This means I cannot use my headset for instance, and also means that other web pages cannot route sound however I want it.
Is this a Firefox bug or are there some hidden options to use sound devices?
