How To Enable and Disable Mozilla Firefox Add-ons

Firefox add-ons are enabled by default when you install them. Sometimes you might want to disable a particular add on temporarily for whatever reason.

Sometimes, Firefox will disable some add-ons and you want them enabled. You need to be careful with this though,  because Firefox might have disabled the add-on for a reason.

Launch Firefox. Click on the Firefox menu and select ‘Add-ons’.   On the add-ons page select the add-on you want to enable or disable.

Use the same button to Enable and Disable.
