Adblock, webdev, and firebug.

Don't use FF much for browsing though. I prefer Safari.

Adblock Plus
Adblock Filterset.G Updater
Better Gmail
Firebug
Download Manager Tweak
Flashblock
Forecastfox
Mouse Gestures
Web Developer

Or my laptop, I have all of the above, except Vimperator (which gives Firefox a vim-like interface and keybindings, perfect for the small screen on my Eee) instead of Mouse Gestures.

I Don't know what they are called, my husband usually gets all the addons for firefox, not me..... but we use the one that lets you download embedded objects, like youtube videos ......   open things in an IE tab, and other than that, just the ultra ultra basic things like adblock and such....

Oh yeah.. I almost forgot, also Web Developer and Video Downloader (at home)

I used FF3 Beta 2 for awhile. Looking forward to 3.0 production.

... Vimperator (which gives Firefox a vim-like interface and keybindings, perfect for the small screen on my Eee) instead of Mouse Gestures.

I agree that hiding extra GUI panels makes sense if using an ASUS Eee PC with 7" display, but using vi keys is probably an overkill.  The whole idea is that jumping back and forth between keyboard and mouse is a waste of time, which is why vi makes a whole lot of sense for things like shell scripting and command-line system administration, but if you're using a browser you're already married to the pointing device!  Sure you can enter links by number, but that's a pain in the arse and newer AJAX / Flash sites will be unusable.  A better solution would be a mouse-centric experience, with all toolbars and stuff "folded" out of view by default...

NoScript (ESSENTIAL security measure for disabling shitty javascript)
CustomizeGoogle (essential for websearches, autocompletes your search as you type and removes ads)
AdBlock Plus (essential if you don't want to see shitty ads everywhere)
ForecastFox Deluxe (Nice, SMALL weather icon in bottom right hand corner)
DictionarySearch (right click any word for its definition)
FireFTP (for when I need an ftp client)
I think there are a couple more I use at work but I can't think of them now...  I couldn't live without the first 3 though.

Unplug is an excellent alternative to VideoDownloader.

I use FireBug, Chinese Perapera-kun, FoxMarks, Download Statusbar, AdBlock Plus, Image Zoom, SearchBar AutoSizer, Text Size Toolbar, and OrbitDownloader (stand-alone app w/ Firefox integration).

Now that I've made this post, reinstalling Firefox again would take 2 minutes instead of 5, yay!  :lol:

I've stopped using the ones I've crossed out above, and I started using Zoom toolbar (zooms both text and images in Firefox 3), Flagfox, and Transliterator.
