    FIREFOX - Must have add-ons?

    Banned
    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!
