Must Have Firefox AddOns

Hello,

Running Firefox now and see there are as many add-ons, as there are gadgets for windows.

Currently have installed anycolor, noscript and adobe flash, however, if there are better ones that do the same job, please let me know.

So, what are the must have's?

Which ones to avoid and why ? (performance, compatibility, dangerous, etc.)

Besides No Script that you mentioned, Adblock Plus, Greasemonkey, and IE tab are must haves.

Yeah, Adblock Plus is tops. A couple other ones I like are Image Zoom and New Tab Homepage.

I hope all of you people using adblockers realize that there are webmasters all over the world starving to death because of your actions

skip screen

Any one who downloads from rapidshare and is tired of waiting check out skip screen. Yeah I know there are downloaders but I also use this.

here are a few ''must have's'' for me...


new tab button...... (adds new tab icon next to the open tab)

new tab home........(opens the home page with every new tab)

nightly tester tool...(allows you to run themes & extensions for all versions of FF)

download status bar...(shows active downloads in the bottom left of the browser window)

Most people that run adblock plus are by the very nature of installing it not the type to click on ads.

You don't need to click peoples ads, quite a few are CPM (pay per impression)
