There should be a way to allow extensions to execute only on specific websites like the Site access option in Edge does, this improves extensions usability and may also enhance privacy.

additionally we should be able to enable ContentScripts injection into currently protected pages, allow-listing deep in settings should be safe enough

Have a list of websites where Firefox will only activate your chosen add-ons

Hello,

We all trust to a certain point the add-ons we use. But one day one of them might be hacked and start collecting your information after an update.

While we can't realistically prevent that we can minimize the risk.

For example I have around 10 different add-on installed but I only need the one for my password manager when I connect to my bank or my crypto exchange.

The idea is having a list where you add your most important websites and a second list where you choose to activate only certain add-ons or none at all for these websites.

To my knowledge, the only way to do that right now is by using a different profile where you don't install add-on or only your vital one to browse those important websites.

Yeah this should 100% be a thing. I have encountered a situation before (just a few minutes ago as of the time I write this comment) where this capability would have been very useful
