The way I handle this is by creating a special profile which has no
extensions or security settings.

Inside your desktop manager open a terminal session and run 'firefox
-P --no-remote'  The no-remote option opens a new Firefox window and
session whether or not you already have one running.  Then press
'Create Profile', give it a name, and use that whenever you get into a
Firefox / Extensions conflict on a particular web site.

I have my Firefox panel launcher set up to use 'firefox -P
--no-remote' always. Tthis allows me vastly more flexibility dealing
with multiple websites at the price of a trivial delay during the
browser start-up.

This problem is the result of recent changes made to the extensions
interface. I can hardly wait to see what is broken with v57.
