I use the following (most used to least)
1. Tab Mix Plus (very convenient)
2. DownThemAll (my favorite)
3. Google Toolbar (of course, but sometimes I prefer the classic home page)
4. Google Notebook (recently started using, like it)
5. Javascript Console
6. StumbleUpon (when it is boring)
7. Firebug (Thanks Eric, looks great, need to explore)
8. VideoDownloader (yet to try it fully)

I also have these installed, used occasionally:
1. Javascript Debugger
2. GMail Manager
3. Fasterfox
4. InspectThis

Meanwhile, does anyone has any performance issues with Firefox?! Its a bit sluggish on my work laptop (which is not the most powerful machine around, I have to admit) but IE and other IE shells (maxthon and avant) are much quicker! Any ideas?

Discovered a new one, very cool: Resizeable Textarea

Ever had a textarea on a web page that was too small for your tastes? Had to scroll left and right, up and down? No more! Just extend it horizontally or vertically with this extension.

Just to update, if you're serious about the Ranch, check out CoLT, since 'Custom Format 1' is compatible with the UBB format.

Just found Internote - you can attach "browser notes" to web pages. Good tool for web development.

Codetch is a code editor that runs along side other Gecko based programs, such as Firefox.


This is way cool.
Although personally, since I rarely have to work directly with HTML, I did not find it that useful.

I am surprised no one has mentioned GreaseMonkey yet.
Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension which lets you to add bits of DHTML ("user scripts") to any web page to change its behavior.

I just can't believe no one is using the Abe Vigoda plugin, so that you can all keep up to date on the famous actors conditions, is he alive, or isn't he.

But this hurts me, the plugin is no longer on the site. I hope he didn't pass away.

I hate firefox.
Extensions would always have issues loading, updating, or unloading.
Too many other little things I just didn't like.

I went back to Opera that I used long ago.
There's glitches with Opera too, but I like aspects of it a lot better.

Great, thanks for sharing. So, to keep it on topic. WHen you did have Firefox, which extensions did you use?
