They are all control the same Safari API and have the same scope of effect. If you change one that change will appear in both of the others. The advantage of using the website preferences icon is it automatically forces the page to reload.
The icon drop-down specifically refers to content blockers, which suggests that other types of extensions are excluded from its functionality.

Re: The Monterey Report Beta 10 joemikeb 10/24/21 08:00 PM
SUMMARY

Monterey (macOS 12) is scheduled for full release tomorrow October 25, 2021. My Current status is…
  • I have no remaining incompatible apps (Rogue Amoeba just completed updating their last app and SoftRAID has a running gold master scheduled for Tuesday release)
  • Montrerey compatilble Etrecheck pro delivered an almost cleanbill of health (there are still a couple of unsigned apps but they run just fine in the Monterey gold master)
  • My system is rock solid stable and has been for days now.
  • the learning curve has been steeper than I expected, but much of that has been subsumed in subsequent betas.
  • The average user should encounter few surprises but the power user may find some additional security related changes and those who stick with or reverted to Big Sur will find they have a steeper learning curve to climb.
  • There are new features in Monterey that add significant utility for power users although it may take some rethinking to take full advantage of them.
  • One major feature, Universal Control, did not make it into macOS 12 — list it among Coming Attractions.
  • For clone fans there is no change from Big Sur nor is any change expected either by CCC or SD. (Once Apple gets moving kernel extensions into the user rather than system area that may improve but given the multi-tiered boot structure I am not about to hold my breath waiting on bootable clones as we knew them in Mac OS X).


OPINION

Monterey is a significant step in the macOS evolution and certainly the most secure version yet. The new features are well thought out, and useful, but not particularly exciting.

SHOULD YOU UPGRADE?

I would, of course, say YES. The step to the next macOS 13(?) will only get higher.

THIS THREAD HAS OUTLIVED WHATEVER USEFULNESS IT HAD, IF ANY, SO I AM GOING TO CLOSE IT AT THIS POINT. IF YOU WISH TO RECORD YOUR OWN INSTALLATION SUCCESSES OR PROBLEMS THOSE CAN GO IN THREADS OF THEIR OWN.

I started getting some spam and, when the first piece arrived, I used to the Apple Mail "Rules" function to put in a 'Delete if it Contains', but then it kept showing up and I kept writing new rules. This morning I reviewed the rules written so far and found that addresses differed slightly.

6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@i8shux.d63rrwu7t5.us
6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@gua84k.gng2y96knq.us
6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@rxb2b5.wp22k437kv.us
6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@67dnhr.mv6wysa1p1.us

Everything is common up to the @ so I wrote a new rule that looks only for addresses "Containing" 6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@ Hopefully that'll do it. And, hopefully this experience will help anyone else with a similar issue.
