Hi again, cafejose!
The Panda extension for web search safety ratings you are referring to is called Panda Safe Web
However, I am not sure about exactly which adblocking extension you are referring to, but anyway;
blocks both scripts and ads

uBlock Origin is NOT an "ad blocker": it is a wide-spectrum blocker -- which happens to be able to function as a mere "ad blocker". The default behavior of uBlock Origin when newly installed is to block ads, trackers and malware sites.
By default, in Adblock Plus, nonintrusive ads are not blocked
in order to support websites (more info here
), but there is a setting to uncheck this feature called Acceptable Ads
in order to block all ads (more info here
Web browsers are some of the most hacked software (or at least "attempt to hack") for obvious reasons. There are constant security improvements as vulnerabilities are discovered. Also, after a point, obsolete versions will stop receiving even security patches.
is an extension that encrypts your communications, making your browsing more secure against hackers (more info here
