FIREFOX - Must have add-ons?

What add-ons do you find indispensable? Give the name and a brief description.

I love :-

Tab Mix Plus - Changes tab focus just by hovering over tab and much more.

Colorfultabs - Allows you to assign different colors to the tabs of websites (e.g olive green to HUKD).

Multirowbookmarkstoolbar - allows multiple bookmark toolbars.
Other Links From Firefox:

Wii Fit, GTA4, Big Brother, and now FireFox. :-(

Tab sidebar is good gives you a preview of all your tabs.

You on FF3 yet? I'm lovin' it! Seems faster and more fully featured.
#3
DownloadHelper!

and the iFox skin is cool as well

down them all - speeds up downloads

no script - prevents malicious scripts (but needs you to manually unblock things you actually want)

ad-block plus - prevents loads of annoying adverts

stumble bar - great for when you are bored. just click stumble and it will direct you to sites that match your chosen topics/interests
#5
one that doesnt appear in add-ons is siteadvisor
highlights any suspicious links on a google search and also shows on the bottom of the screen any dodgy sites.

Grease monkey is a good one. Use that to run a script to quickly delete spam members from a phpbb forum. (But has other uses besides this.) Shame it doesn't also delete spam posts!!!! :lazy:

Does the Adblock plus filter subscriptions stop quidco from tracking? I've installed it but got it on manual so I add all the adverts I don't want.

Just installed tab sidebar but when I went to close the tab sidebar it made all the open tabs close and my tabs on the top wont come back and so I can only have 1 webpage open at a time :x

I have mine subscribed to a USA one called easylist or something. I never considered that it could stop quidco tracking, but i've had it for a year or so and all my quidco stuff has tracked :thumbsup:

The Ebay add-on - view items in side bar, and pops up reminders before the auction finishes.

I was a bit suspect of this one when I saw "Macafe" - but it seems to be ok. Shame its lacking in the sites that is registered in its searches. I just did a test run on some of the bigger sites Ive done and not listed! Guess that tells me something!
