    Here's a couple of the ones that I find useful. If you guys have any more suggestions, feel free to share.

    AdBlockPlus - Removes all advertising. Make sure you add a list to this one

    NoScript - Only allow scripts on sites you trust

    Add to Search Bar 2.0 - Allows you to add any engine to your search bar.. Including Kitty-Kats's search

    Greasemonkey - Changes the way that web pages are displayed on your browser
    **I use the "W.A.R. Links Checker" script to avoid wasting my time clicking on dead links.**

    DownThemAll - A handy downloader tool that I use.. Some people use JDownloader, but I'm too lazy to try that one out.

    Forgot one:

    ImageHost Grabber - Just another one of those tools that gets all the images posted on a page.

    FlashGot is a must have.

    Download all the links, movies and audio clips of a page at the maximum speed with a single click, using the most popular, lightweight and reliable external download managers.


    WOT is a good tool that rates websites safety.

    WOT shows you which websites you can trust based on millions of users’ experiences around the world.

    Thanks for the additions q3forever. Could you add a link to their downloads page and tell us what the FlashGot add-on does?

    I think this is a must have ....when it is spinning then you know it can download a imbedded video from the web page.

    DownloadHelper is a way to discover many sites showing Web videos from all around the world. They are here !
    DownloadHelper is also a free Firefox extension for downloading and converting videos from many sites with minimum effort. Install the extension !

    The best youtube downloader... AND it can download full HD videos (1080p, even 4000p), unlike most other downloaders. Convert audio track from videos to MP3 or WAV, or save audio track in native format (Ogg Vorbis, AAC/M4A, MP3).
    It actually downloads the video & audio separately, then will quickly mux them together. If you ever need to download from youtube, try it!

    Also, Redirect Bypasser... great to bypass redirects on image & file links:

    Also, 2 great Greasemonkey scripts:
    Adsbypasser lite... skips most of those countdown links:

    Handy Image... bypasses many image host ads, popups, etc.

    Lastly, if you don't like how firefox has been changing (bloated, etc), try Pale Moon. It's an open-source fork of Firefox, which is much lighter & efficient. It's a quick transition (surprised me how fast), with tools to import extensions, bookmarks, settings, etc from Firefox.

    AdBlock Plus is a resource hog and slows down Firefox. Ublock Origin is the truth. Ever since I switched FF is great again. NoScript is mandatory for me.
