The only firefox extension from that list is "SaveFrom.net Helper". That's because those articles are old and Mozilla removed the other two!

When you install SaveFrom, firefox say it requires four permissions that clearly can access your data. Buyer beware!

So extensions are just like Android and iOS apps, the permissions are clearly stated. Windows apps have no such guarantees, your only protection is anti-virus.
