Don't be panic by this type of news and experimental tests. If they want, they can fingerprint any user whether they use a certain amount of extension or not. Millions of people use Chrome+uBO+Google Docs Offline. There's nothing to be worried about. Browsing internet comfortably is more important.

I temporary disable uBlock Origin not permanently.

Are You performing "Malware testing Interactions that includes analysis, reverse-engineering, execution or storage of malware samples" without any virtualization method: VMWare, VirtualBox, Windows VM... ?

I would suggest a password manager.
1Password or Bitwarden are the 2 worth giving a try.
