    What are your favorite Firefox Addons???


    I could not live without some of those little helpers that make Firefox soooo cooool.
    Here is the list of mine....

    Adblock Plus...blocks adds.

    Better Gmail2...enhances Gmail with a compilation of user scripts and styles.

    Colorfull Tabs...colorful tabs color every tab in a different color and makes them easy to distinguish while beautifying the overall appeal of the interface.

    Customize Google...enhance google search results and removes ads and spam.

    Delicious Bookmarks...access your bookmarks wherever you go and keep them organize no matter how many you have.

    Download Satusbar...view and manage downloads from a tidy statusbar.

    Download Helper...download images and videos from many websites (youtube for example).

    DownThemAll...the mass downloader for Firefox.

    Duplicate tab...allows you to duplicate a tab or merge the window.

    FireShot...adss the ability to take a screenshot of the page, edit and save, copy to clipboard, send to external editor or email it.

    Flagfox...displays a flag depicting the location of the current server.

    ForecastFox...get international weather forecast and display it in any toolbar or statusbar with this highly customizable extension.

    Googletoolbar...we all know this one.

    Google Preview...inserts web site previews in google and yahoo search results.

    Image Download...downloads all the images on the page.

    KeyScrambler...protects you against key loggers.

    WOT...security rating for web sites...more...

    Undo Closed Button..enables you to reopen closed tabs.

    Tab Scope...preview and navigate tab contents through popup.

    NoScript...extra protection for your Firefox...more...

    Tab Mix Plus...very nice extension, unfortunately it`s still not compatible with the newest version of Firefox.

    Also you can post the screen of your Firefox look.

    There's too much going on for me there, at the moment I'm running Firefox 3.0.1 with the iFox 3.0.3 theme. To be honest though, I've never really tried any of these add-ons so I don't dispute their uses :)

    I had some slow down issue with TOR or maybe it was not setup properly...don`t know.
    If you want to stay even safer, try the Keyscrambler too.
    (I like No Script plug-in too)

    I am really liking the ad-block plugin now and I should have known about it ages ago. It even blocks those annoying "snap banners" that you pops up when you hover over the links on sites like tomshardware.
