Firefox plugin makes pc crash

I recently installed a plugin on Firefox called Ghostery - Ad Blocker, and immediately Firefox crashed so that I had to reboot the computer (running Fedora 26). And it does that every time I launch Firefox, and it crashes so fast I don't have the time to even disable the plugin.

I'm quite sure it is the plugin because Chrome doesn't have the same problem and Firefox had it the first time (ever in three years) when I've installed it.

So I was wondering if there was a way to disable (or better remove) the plugin from terminal without the need to launch Firefox with some command or even by deleting the corresponding folder of the plugin. I've already tried to run: dnf remove firefox and then dnf install firefox but the plugin keeps being installed and Firefox keeps crashing. Thanks for your help.
