Every time I update,FF disables all addons in private mode
When ublock is disabled,I get tons of annoying ads everywhere
How is that safer

Have you set the addon to work in Private Mode ?

Check your Profile folder & see if you don't have some sort of numerically increasing named files.

(Not sure offhand where FF stores extension settings related to Private Browsing) but lets say they're in prefs.js (probably ? in extension*.* ?) then look for something like prefs.js, prefs-1.js, prefs-2.js, ... which might indicate a pe... but no, you're say on program update - not open open/close of FF...

Also check the dates (timestamp) of said file (pref.js or extension*.*, or whatever).

Hmm...

I have only one prefs.js file and the modified date is today
addonStartup.json.lz4
extension-preferences.json
extensions.json
extension-settings.json
addons.json
All today

Opening and closing FF multiple times does noting,it happens only when I update firefox

No,the dates were "today" because I update some of the addons and change some settings
