Fellow FireFox users.

I was just wondering what you feel are the best add-ons and which ones do you use on a regular basis.

I only really have that standard dictionary running and firebug when I am developing pages, I just installed a RSS feed ticker but it's already starting to annoy me.

Anyone got any good or fun ones to share?

Its handy if you want to download vids from websites so you can watch them later.

Firesheep is awesome if you are into hacking other users FB or Twitter accounts, This add-on just came about a month or so ago

I would suggest the following:

Ad Block Plus:

Better Privacy:

Flash Got:

These will keep you from having ads pop up, delete LSO cookies and allow for downloading flash and other media.

The Flash one sounds interesting.

Also I was thinking I might have a go at developing an add on for fun. Any suggestions for something new you would like to see?
I have some coding experience but I haven't done it for ages so I thought I might get back into it a bit

Absolutely! Develop an add on that alerts you when your browser is sending information about your system to one of the alphabet agencies. It will be the most downloaded add on in the history of Firefox!!

I love autopager. It will load all the pages on a site(not ATS though) and as you scroll down it just goes to the next page.

No squint is also a good add on.It allows you to enlarge or decrease the size of a web page.

I use it here on ATS and I am using it right now to type this message.It increases the size of the response box so my old eyes can see the letters!

It also "remembers" your settings for web pages you visit.

The RSS reader seemed to be a good idea,but it really slowed down Firefox at least for me.

I'm going to add reminder fox, as I have a terrible memory.
I hope I remember to add reminders to it

Two that are on constantly are the AVG safe search and toolbar.
The safe search identifies dodgy websites on the search engine list so that you can avoid them.
The toolbar is just that a toolbar.
Another add on i find useful is the Windows Media Player plugin.
This is really a must if you want to listen to the ATS live shows (which i do)

Hope this helps

Download helper..for collecting music videos...Higher quality the better.
Also one called...DragnDrop, I think...Allows to you easily attach multiple files if you are uploading to a site..
Just select them all and put them in the upload box..

On a related note..There is a VERY cool one I use for Thunderbird email client. Attachment extractor.
I use it as a backup for my coworkers that have to send items to our network...The attach files..when the email is received the attachment is extracted then directed to a location on the network that you define.
You can also define the file type, a list of email addresses that are accepted. It saved my butt on numerous occasions.

I am using download helper as of now.

A****** **** - Knocks out most of the annoying distracting stuff that wastes bandwidth.
N******* - This picks up what the first one leaves off and stops most malware drive-bys.
FireBug - This is a handy dandy web design tool.
Update Bookmark - This is a niche item for following sequential pages like webcomics.
Colorzilla - A quick tool for finding the exact RGB color of something on the web.
Downloadhelper - Way to grab vids or music for offline viewing/listening.
Chatzilla - A simple and convenient way to talk to your online buddies on IRC.

Nothing too fancy or out of the way, as I'm sure most of those are common amongst Firefox users. Not to mention they are a factor in why I still prefer Firefox over other browsers.

Exif Viewer 1.55.
I read about the geotagging of pictures and wanted to see some of it from the pics on line. Most of the sites strip the info on the upload. Others have modified (re sized) the pictures before upload that usually strips the information also. The majority of the rest of the pictures only have the camera information like f-stop. But every once in awhile i get the full GPS information of where and when the picture was taken.
