I now see it is the «Reveal hidden HTML elements» extension.  So I
disabled it, and the buttons are not displayed anymore.

I understand that you remove the extension when your local CUPS website
does not work.  However, I tested this on Parabola just now, and my
experience is that the CUPS website does not function properly (empty
help page for instance) because of the LibreJS plugin, not the «Reveal
hidden HTML elements» plugin.

Have been discussions already on what extensions to enable by default?
There would be friction between what is needed for privacy on the one
hand, and what is needed for the working of websites on the other hand.
Probably the web is too broken for those things to be reconcilable.


P.S. Can anyone tell me if there is a relevant difference between the
terms «plugin», «add-on» and «extension»?  I can see the structure how
Firefox/IceCat uses them (plugins, extensions \in add-ons), but didn't
we use to call these things all plug-ins?  Maybe plugins are external
pieces of software, whereas extensions are using internal
Firefox/IceCat scripting.
