After updating from 3.4.5 on a FF densely strewn with add-ons. You basically can't see a rule (in the Enable/Disable Rules window) until it's applied somewhere, and then they get all re-hidden when you end the session. (The tab-relevant rules in the drop-down menu are displayed correctly).
Sub-issue No.1: when you re-order the visible rules by name and then close the HTTPSE window, they all revert to their previous order, which is the order of their use during the current session. (Along with the main problem, it amounts to an inadvertent tracker usable by those with a physical access to your computer).
Sub-issue No.2: 'Search www.google.com' (instead of 'encrypted...') turns on (but can be re-disabled).
