    Tell us your favorite firefox extensions and explain what they do.

    I'll start:

    - StumbleUpon: Brings up random web pages based on your interests.
    - DownThemAll: Very effective download manager.
    - Fasterfox: Speeds up firefox.
    - Fission: Gives the progress bar in the address bar like Safari.
    - GrApple: A theme that makes firefox look much more mac-ish.

    I absolutely cannot live without:

    - TabMixPlus: wrangle your tab behavior to your very specific needs
    - FoxMarks: sync bookmarks across multiple computers, completely automatic

    Nice to have:
    - GrApple for Uno theme
    - Stop or Reload extension -- the stop and reload buttons become a single button
    - FlashBlock - don't show Flash elements on a page until you click on them

    Context Search - Expands the context menu's 'Search for' item into a list of installed search engines, allowing you to choose a specific search engine every time.

    AdBlock Plus - to get rid of unwanted flash contents (I think it's better than Flash Block).

    British English Dictionary (anyboy know why this lists as uncompatible with Firefox 2.0.0.3?) and Norsk Bokmål og Nynorsk ordliste.

    I think the only add-on I have is Viamatic FoXposé - an Exposé-like feature (press F8 to see a snapshot of all open tabs)

    Tab Mix Plus
    Add Context Menu

    Those are "must have"s. But I've got a bunch of others installed. Not sure any more what's default behaviour, and what's enabled via Extensions.

    The only one I really download and use is FasterFox. Haven't really had the chance to explore any other extensions.

    Some websites/ISPs don't like FasterFox, just a heads-up.
