Whoa thats a huge list, your firefox must be slow mikezilla2.

The Green ones made it to my (new) desktop computer.

My list looks like that (on my laptop):

- Adblock Plus

- DownloadHelper

- Easy App Tabs (creates app tab by double-clicking on a Tab)

- Firebug

- Live HTTP headers (I needed that for school, to understand HTTP protocols)

- Personas (I think its integrated now)

- QuickProxy (This was useful to change the proxy i was using when i changed networks at school)

- FoxTab (Disabled)

I'm the same, FireFox seems to take longer to boot up for me with more add-ons.

I haven't seen a lot of people mention this, but Speed Dial. I love it! Everytime I boot up the internet, all my sites and e-mails I need to check are there waiting for me.

Adblock Plus 2.0.2 and Now Playing X 1.1.7. Now Playing X allows me to show what I'm watching/listening to on Youtube to my MSN Messenger.

I'm using Firefox 3.6.25, Now Playing X was not compatible with newer versions of Firefox so I stuck with 3.6.XX and probably will for some time. No issues with 3.6.XX versions of Firefox either, if you do, you probably got viruses!

Except some sites won't work with that outdated version since they use code that has came out after it. A lot of new functions do not work on outdated browsers. Some sites that would still work often block old browsers and display an 'upgrade browser message'.

On top of that you're also missing all the latest security fixes and such. There is a reason updates are released and to not upgrade over some silly addon is a little foolish, but then that's your choice. Just letting you know the security risks.

Guess I don't visit websites/visit a lot of websites that tell me I've got an old browser and need to update.

No worries here for security

1) Adblock Plus 'as already mentioned'

2) ESET Smart Security 4.0.437

3) 3.6.XX is still getting updates too for such security risks

Computer is safe! :dhh:

FireFTP - Yeah, it's kinda old school, but I like having an integrated FTP client.

FlashBlock - Gives you a "play" button to run flash or not. I've seen it show hidden flash objects in the upper right corner of a page. Pages with a lot of flash also load much faster.

MAFIAAFire - When a website is taken down (with or without due process) for copyright complaints, it redirects to the site's new name.

IETab - For those websites whose coders can only write for Windows Internet Explorer.
