Hello Draycen,

It seems it's more borked than I thought. I did a bit more

First of all, a new profile does make the dialog go away, so presumably
it's something in my profile that it doesn't like. That said, I have a
lot invested in that profile (add-on settings, history), so I wouldn't
want to lose it. Anyway, it would be nice to see what caused it,
especially since I didn't modify anything in my profile since the update
to Lucid (thus it may hit others).

What else I observed:
1) With my borked (default) profile, the add-ons window is always blank. That is, not only the ones displayed spuriously at start-up, but also those that I try to open via the menu. So I can't turn extensions off one by one (except by messing with the profile folder).
2) Even so, my extensions seem to work.
3) While starting FF from the command line I noticed it complained about the QuakeLive extension. QL comes with both a 32bit and a 64bit library, and FF was complaining about the 32bit one. I deleted the extension by removing its folder in my profile. On the next start-up FF noticed this and said it removed it, and I got no more chatter about it. But still my problem persists.

Is there any way of disabling (non-destructively) an extension by hand
(not going through the menu)?
