Reinstalled Firefox — What add-ons do you use?

I recently had to reinstall Firefox and was wondering what (other than the add-ons listed below) add-on’s everyone else is using?

I personally use this as my standard add-on image.

  1. Well,looks like you’ve got a few more than me. I use:

  2. Jimmy Bogard says:

    For me, it starts and ends with mouse gestures:

    Soooo very addictive. You know how your hands never leave the keyboard with ReSharper? This lets your hand never leave the mouse when surfing.

  3. CustomizeGoogle
    IE Tab
    IE View Lite
    Scribe Fire – not bad for quick blogging from FF
    Tab Mix Plus – prefer it’s session management to FF’s plus bunches of other features

    @ Tom, thanks for the links I will have to check out your toolbox.

    @Jimmy, Now you are making me dangerous! I will have to check it out.

    @Brian, doh! I can’t believe I forgot that one! Thanks!

  5. Steven R says:

    If you don’t want to use the mouse when surfing I recommend Hit-A-Hint

  6. @Steven – you beat me to it!!
    @Joe – I also use:
    – DownThemAll :
    – BlogJetThis

  7. Joe says:

    All-in-one sidebar
    and Selenium

  8. Joe Ocampo says:

    @Steven, JP, and Joe thanks for make Firefox a more pleasurable experience.

  9. Murray Thompson says:

    A couple others I like are:
    -Venkman JavaScript Debugger
    -Download Statusbar

    I really like the tools that allow you to preview a link without actually opening a tab/window for it. The original one I found is CoolIris,, but there are one or two more that have surfaced recently. Very well done, easy to use, nice feature set.

    They say they are working on an IE7 version, but alas, it’s not here yet.

  11. Steve Owens says:

    Another one to check out is Tab Mix Plus. I find the feature set handy enough that it’s one of the first things I install on a new FF setup.

  12. Joe Ocampo says:

    OK Everyone I have installed all this add-ons and firefox is now consuming 1 gig of memory!
    Just kidding.

    This is great to hear about all the add-ons that I have been missing out on?

    A question that I have is: “Is there a diminishing return on the number of Add-ons that you can have running?” It seems like at some point the web experience would start to become impacted at the stake of creature features.”

  13. Steve Owens says:

    Just so happens, I had to bring up a new FireFox. In the process, I remembered I had forgotten some others that help me.

    All-In-One Mouse Gestures – If you use a mouse to browse, install this.

    All-In-One Sidebar – If you like the sidebar interface, this is a good one.
