    With all the excitement of firefox 3 released (for those who were able to get it lol), i was just wondering wat addons do u guys use? i'm asking for the best of the best here, and preferably ones that work on 3.0 or will soon be updated to do so.

    i use downloadhelper (ability to download a video off any site, such as youtube)

    also, any other downloads (such as awesome skins, or performance enhancers, such as fasterfox) is much appreciated.

    discuss!

    I have WiBrain, so the resolution is high and the screen is small. To remedy that I use No Squint. I also like Grab and Drag for more touch-centric browsing. Fuller Fullscreen was nice too, but I don't use it so much anymore.

    i'm sticking to firefox 2 for now as most plugins won't work on firefox 3, plus i like my themes too.

    .jar is a java app if I remember correctly. you should be able to execute it as a normal app... I think, or run it through a web browser. as for getting addons, just download the add on, rightclick - save as, then run from desktop if you dont want to add the site in your trusted sites in the Firefox options some where

    Most plugins do work on Firefox 3.

    Out of the thirty or so I used regularly, the only one not compatible with FF3 was TabMix Plus.

    Firefox 3 has a huge graphical problem for me.

    My setup is Windows Vista, using WindowBlinds 6 to run an XP uxtheme (Luna Element) that was converted with Skin Studio 5.

    The result? The windows all look fine, but all context and dropdown menus are FUCKED, they stretch across the width of the screen and have no options displayed, you can do nothing.

    I don't plan to use Firefox 3 anytime soon because of this, shame.
    A TON of my extensions stopped working too, I'm sure they may have worked if I tried the nightly tester tools though.
    There is no way in HELL I am giving up imagebot, that thing is WAY too useful for forum posting.

    I'd rather not use it, but it's the only way to use Windows XP uxthemes on Vista, as far as I'm aware.
