Post up your favorite Firefox extensions.

I know I am not using Firefox to its full capacity and there are hundreds of extensions out there. Which ones have been the most useful to you? Please include links to the downloads if you can!

It is a web browser for me, only default plugins are needed. Good ol' talkback for crash dump analysis to Mozilla.

I like ForecastFox. It puts the weather in the bottom right hand corner with a radar.

IE Tab: due to lame programmers and their pages that won't load right in anything other than IE

Tab Mix Plus: badass tabbed browsing optionss

NoScript: for security and privacy

Fasterfox: dunno. I claims to speed things up.

All-in-one Gestures: let's you do a bunch of commands with just mouse movements (like back, forward, save as, new tab, close, etc)

Tab-X: adds a close button to every tab

I'm a StumbleUpon user and love it! I would recommend it to anyone who is an Internet junkie! I also have Greasemonkey, Forcastfox, and FireFTP. All are great addons.

StumbleUpon is definitely a good one. Great for when you're bored.

The newest version of firefox has that. I hated it and removed it because I would always accidently close the tabs when I clicked on them.
