    Mine are

    NoScript: Best buddy in the whole wide web, nothing runs scripts unless I explicitly allow them to.

    Easy Youtube Video Downloader: Love this thing, I can download any video on youtube, from the actual video's page itself, in whatever quality and format is available. I can't live without this addon, just cant.

    Download Statusbar: An asthetic choice, but has some uses. I can manage all of my downloads from a status bar on the bottom of FireFox window. I can pause, cancel, open the containing folder, etc.

    Personas: Love it for asthetic reasons, and because I don't like using regular themes. Foxkeh Canoe is my current one.

    Youtube to MP3: Allows me to convert any video to an mp3, HQ or regular quality.

    • adblock plus: undeniably the best add-on ever.
    • greasemonkey: Simply amazing. Surprised nobody else so far mentioned this.
    • auto pager: Automatically loads next page (for example, on google search, it'll load page two directly below page one). Settings are customizable (but very complicated) and you can add your own websites.
    • smooth wheel: Bunch of settings to customize scrolling speed, smoothness, etc.
    • quickdrag: simple, customizable mouse gestures.
    • search preview: adds preview of webpages on google search.
    • quick search bar: makes searching much easier. Replaces search bar with the icon of each search engine you have installed. you can just drag/drop text onto the icons to search on which ever engine you dropped on.
    • flash block: functions much like NoScript, but I personally think it's better.

    Addblock plus (mduh)
    Firebug (Best invention ever for webdevelopers!)
    FireFTP (great ftp client)
    Easy Youtube Video Downloader (pretty straightforward, I guess.)

    Addblock plus (like everyone else)
    Addblock plus element hider helper (manually disabling things on sites is nice)
    Autopager (removes the need for clicking next page on forums and such)
    Add-on Compatibility reporter (usefull of addons refuse to put a higher number in the compatibility list)
    Download Statusbar (removes the need of using that awful downloads menu)
    DownThemAll ( download manager)
    Flagfox (lets me see where sites are hosted)
    Greasemonkey (duh)
    gTranslator (easy google translator)
    HTTPS-Everywhere (uses https instead of http whenever possible)
    TinEye Reverse image Search ( looks up images on tineye)
    WOT (checks if A site is reliable)
    Ghostery (removes all the statistics BS from sites most sites have at least 3 of them GBAtemp only has google analytics btw)
    Those are only my favorites I have installed a lot more addons than this

    the settings for auto pager look complicated on first sight but if you look at the guide you really only need about 6 clicks to enable a new page so its actually really simple but doesnt always work for example I made one for gbatemp but it only works in threads and I couldn't get it working to both browse trough threads and through boards

    Google is doing it automatically without a firefox addon, no?
    It's just to have the preview always active on all result at the same time?


    Red = Must have, I can't use firefox without it.
    Blue = for development
    • Abduction! : take screenshot of any page content easilly
    • Add N Edit Cookies
    • Addblock Plus
    • AutoCopy : select it, it's copied [​IMG]
    • Automatic Save Folder : Plus, it's mine! Sorry for the lack of updates. Not enough time to work on it.
    • AutoPager (disabled, memory leaking or need too many memory)
    • ChromeList
    • ColorZilla
    • Console²
    • Cooliris
    • DOM Inspector
    • DownThemAll (I never use it, except for mass content filtering on a webpage, which is very rare)
    • Extension List Dumper : export a list of your installed extension
    • Firebug
    • GetJetable email
    • Quick Local Switcher
    • Remote Xul Manager
    • Session Manager
    • RikaiChan
    • TabMixPlus : adds more option to the tabs
    • TimeStamp Converter
    • USA English Spellchecker
    • Web Developer


    Please, don't report to developers that their addons are not working with "latest released version", they usually know it.
    Just use the "Add-on Compatibility reporter" for personal purpose only to enable add-on you usually use.
    Developers often get bad comment and bad ranks because users are still using the old add-on instead of the latest beta.

    Google does have a preview feature that comes up when clicking on the description of the webpage, but I don't like it. >_>

    the addon inserts a preview for every webpage in a thumbnail-like style.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Download Helper (this thing is a beast for pretty much any site with media on it)
    Addblock Plus - Element Hider (A beauty)
    Greasemonkey for Facebook

    Stylish is pretty nifty, not essential though

    AdBlock Plus - Must have. Just don't use it on 'Temp >-p
    NoScript - Usefull, but can be pain sometimes... Somesites just don't work, even if I temporarily accept everything, so I need to disable it.
    TabMix Plus - How can you survive with just the normal tab options?

    Text to Link - Can't live without it (oh, drama). It allows you to doubleclick a a url that is just plain text.
    Image Zoom (i think that's the name... I'm at work now) - Allow you to zoom an image using right mouse button + wheel to zoom in and zoom out.
    Flashgot - It's nice, period.

    BugMeNot - Allows you to access some sites you'd need to register before.
    Show Image - When a picture doesn't load, this let you to just reload it, just like on IE.
    Open On IE - Nobody here uses it? Opens the current site on Internet Explorer.

    I think there are some more i use, but i can't check right now.

    Ad Block Plus
    Nightly Tester Tools
    Greasemonkey

    I used to be so attached to TabMixPlus, although recently I've just grown away from it, other than that I don't really have any other addons clogging up my browser.

    Also why do people use all these Youtube downloaders and Youtube to mp3 converters? Don't people just use JDownloader?

    @Minox : Thanks for download status bar [​IMG]

    I updated Automatic Save Folder to work on Firefox 5.* (on mozilla page, not on the official website yet).
    The developers are already working on Firefox 7.* [​IMG]

    I should continue the development this summer, I have ideas but will required almost a full rewriting.
