Update:
I'm finding that with each Firefox revision/update it's necessary (for me at least) to access about:profiles and reset the default profile to my original one.
It's a quick work-around, albeit a PITA, but at least it allows me to update without the rigamarole that Mozilla seems to like and which I cannot make work.

In the new scheme of things, whenever I get notification of an update to one of the FF add-ons/extensions, I can find no way to instigate the update. There is no longer a choice to "update now".
Anybody have a clue as to how such might be accomplished?

Firefox > Tools > Add-ons. Click the gear icon and select Check For Updates. That automatically updates them for me.

It should, but it doesn't for me; nothing happens when I do just that.
Hence my query.

If I'm not mistaken, you've gone from running Firefox ESR to running the latest version.

I hate to say it, but if that's correct, all the problems you're having MAY result from the switch, and it MAY pay you to completely trash your installation and start up from scratch. frown

Thanks, but that's not the problem. I never did run FF 60 ESR and I always start from scratch with each new version of FF Quantum.
There's just something "funny" with the way the new versions handle updates (which I do not permit automatically).
The extension I'm having problems with is uBlock Origin.
Add to that I have opted out of "Recommend extensions as you browse" and yet recommendations still pop up on the extension page (the same ones over and over). So much for honoring preferences.

After updating to Firefox Quantum 69.0 the same issues continue to exist.
Despite Mozilla's assurances there is no way to stop their add-on recommendations from popping up.

Since you seem disenchanted with Firefox, you might take a look at. Brave and/or Vivaldi. Both are derivatives of Chromium, which is the open source version of Google Chrome. While I'm not a particular fan of Google, Chrome is one of the best browsers around, and both Brave and Vivaldi are far enough removed from the Google collective that I am comfortable that they won't be phoning home to the Borg. (Note: I am not so confident about the extensions from the Chrome Store.)

Not disenchanted. Just want it to work as advertised, especially not wanting "recommendations" for add-ons. If I could figure out how to totally disable that aspect (eg, via about:config or somehow locate the plist for such [which I can't], I'd do so. As it stands, it's a annoyance whenever I look at my add-ons page (which isn't all that often).

I quite dislike Chrome as a browser.

But thanks for the suggestions.
