    Also You don't need MalwareBytes Premium (with resident protection enabled) alongside EmsiSoft...
    Alright. I have a lifetime license for Malwarebytes Premium, and thought that I might as well use it, even though it's not the best out there. :) And MBAM is apparently still able to work alongside an antivirus product(e.g Emsisoft). I also haven't noticed any major resource hogging having them both in the background.

    Windows Firewall:
    - can use Tinywall in conjunction, less than 2MB to install

    Extension(s):
    - Emsisoft Browser Security, Malwarebytes Browser Guard, either one of the other or replace both with Bitdefender Trafficlight

    Backup:
    - Please use some sort of backup solution whether it's cloud (MEGA) or a dedicated program such as Macrium Reflect

    Rest is fine, two are optional, the backup should be mandatory.

    2020-06-07: Replaced Privacy Badger with ClearURL in Firefox. Felt unnecessary to have both Ublock Origin and Privacy Badger at the same time.
    Since you installed ClearURLs, it's better if you delete browser cache. ClearURLs can prevent Etag headers but those which are already on your cache can't be removed by it. Also you may disable the domain blocking feature on ClearURLs as you already have uBlock Origin.
