There are only two Firefox extensions worth even the free price tag.....Fatser Fox and Ad block Plus. Other than these, one can tweak Firefox to do almost anything with the about: config....nuff said!

How about an add-on that let's you say...print out a really great post on Maximum PC's website without all the colorful ads and junk.

Better yet, how about a "printer friendly" option on Max PC's articles?

This is great, thanks.

My favorite extension by far is StumbleUpon. I have found no better way to kill hours at work on a slow afternoon, or just to find webpages that I would never have found otherwise.

I'm surprised BugMeNot wasn't on the list! I have a list of my favorites here, with descriptions:

I routinely end up using DownThemAll! as a regular part of my FF browsing, and find that it is essential for those of us who frequent imageboards, and download sites. Aside from automatically downloading as many pictures/links/mp3's as you'd like at a time, it also allows for simultaneous downloads as defined by the user.

Another--and essential--rogram is Morning Coffee. I click one button on the desktop each morning and it automatically loads everything I want to check. It allows for any mix of days (MWF, M-F, every day, etc.) and if you have a lot of comics, webpages, and whatnot that you just have to check first thing in the morning--morning coffee is the program you must download.

I use Google browser sync. i always have my bookmarks and preferences every where i go. Trashmail is also a must. If a website requires an email address i just right click and "paste a disposable address". i set how long the email is active and how many forwards it will do. then its gone with no trace back to my real address.

I always install the User-Agent Switcher.
That way whenever I encounter a page that insists on you viewing it in Internet Explorer...I am like a boy-scout...always prepared.
I also like having Fore-cast Fox installed.
Can't plan a picnic without knowing what the weather is going to be.
I also use Media Connectivity plug-in.
A useful ap for configuring which of your media players will handle a streaming media etc etc.
Finally...if you like texting...but you're outta minutes...try using WataCrackaz AutoSMS. All you need to know is the number and the service that your textee subscribes to. Its free to text...altho a bit more pricey to recieve that text. )My service with Cingular charges 20cents for a text with it(

I use keyscrambler personal. It does a driver level encryption of your key strokes when typing in a password, in order to fool key loggers.

Also QuickJava. Its similar to Noscript, but less intrusive.

Does this interfere with using Roboform?

Try AdBlock Plus and Fasterfox too. Adblock plus nukes all online ads, and subsequently decreases loading time. Fasterfox is just a collection of nextwork tweaks that improve speed in general.

I tried installing fasterfox, and it said it wasn't compatiable with firefox 2.0 +
I clicked on the fasterfox 2.0 version, where it said it added support...
