Just curious as to what Firefox extensions people are using ?

Mine:

Adblock plus
Flashblock
All-in-One Gestures ( uses mouse for forward/back/close etc)
CoolPreview (Pops up a small page when pointer hovered over link)
ForecastBar Enhanced ( I go fishing and need to get a good weather forecast)

Quite a few Plugins, many of which I disable ... like MS Office, Adobe Acrobat etc - I don't believe I need them to enhance my Firefox browsing ...

Wasn't sure what forum to post in, as it's not technically a windows-only product ...




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

DownThemAll! is a great download manager that is one reason why I haven't sailed away in the chrome-boat. If you're a dabbler or a keen web developer then the "Web Developer" toolbar is awesome too.

NoScript and Adblockplus are my main ones, NoScript is definitely the best plugin for FF ever.

I also have screengrab, unhide fields, Torbutton and foxyproxy, but those have gone unused in a looong time.

I'm running a lot of the extensions mentioned here, the one I can't live without is the Web Developer toolbar.  Gives me quick and easy access to a variety of different things, makes developing so much easier.

Tree Style Tab. Really handy, especially when you are looking up a lot of documentation online. Organises your tabs more effectively, and it runs them down the side which is great on a widescreen monitor.

It's a bit out of date, but I've only removed CookieCuller and ChatZilla.

Syncplaces does something similar except to somewhere I choose.
Probably not better (only Fx, kind of a pain to configure/use), but it means I know exactly where the file ends up and how to get it back if the provider/author disappears.

I use this as well.  It's so handy not needing to copy my bookmarks between Desktop and Laptop anymore.

I like the idea of Xmarks, Google bookmarks etc but I prefer to have control/store it myself like Detrurie.

Will probably give sync places a try.
