    Web Developer is incredible if you do any type of web authoring (or are looking to learn!):

    As much as I don't like adverts and flash content playing on there own i would say that my most favorite firefox plugin is foxmarks.

    I have two macs and one PC that I like to keep the bookmarks synced between and this plugin makes it so much easier.

    With that said I have since switched to camino (runs much faster on my computers) and a foxmarks type feature is planned for the next release of so.

    I'd have to say the youtube and wikipedia search button. I also like Download them all (one word with exclamation point.)

    McAfee SiteAdvisor. It integrates seamlessly and is really useful for a quick glance at sites to see whether or not they're trustworthy. Mind you, it's more of a priority when using Windows due to spyware, but it doesn't hurt to be as careful in OS X.

    TabMixPlus is just one of many extensions I consider "must have"s.

    Context Search is a good little add on.

    Instead of highlighting text then pasting it in the search bar, you can highlight, rightclick, and search in whichever search you want, be it google youtube or wikipedia etc.

    Essential Firefox Add-ons

    AdBlockPlus
    FlashBlock
    NoScript

    There are also some nice GrApple themes that make Firefox look more like a proper OS X app:

    I use:

    Download Statusbar
    Video DownloadHelper
    Foxmarks Bookmarks Synchronizer
    AdBlock
    ChatZilla
    CustomizeGoogle
    FireFTP
    PicLens
    TabMix Plus
    Web Developer


    I tried NoScript but it became more annoying than anything else, having to allow every single page I visit to allow content.

    NoScript will calm down quickly with just a few mouse clicks for the sites you visit often. As rampant as cross-site scripting is, you need something these days. I'd like something that is initially less intrusive, but NoScript is the best thing I've found so far.

    Must Have:

    Adblock Plus
    CookieSafe
    Flat Bookmark Editing
    Linkification
    Remember Mismatched Domains
    ScrapBook
    Web Developer

    Also Nice:

    All-in-One Sidebar
    Update Channel Selector
    Dictionary Tool Tip
    YesScript (which I prefer to NoScript when in need)

    *Also, either the GrApple Yummy or GrApple Delicious theme is a must, especially if using one of the 3.0 beta versions.
