    I haven't added any and have been using Firefox exclusively since Nathan suggested it sometime back when I was having some problems with Top Gear (if I remember correctly). Funny, last week I was considering some of the add-on's , but never got around to it.

    Scott, thanks for your list. I'll certainly investigate them further.:Thumbsup:

    Sorry I can't suggest any right now.

    Most of the ones I use many will have no use for as they are for web dev and testing.

    For Fun

    ChromaTabs Plus - Colors browser tabs based on favicon colors
    Liquid Tabs -Animates tab open and close.
    Xmarks - Bookmary Symc over multipe devices, probably will go away when FF4 goes live with the same built in functionality
    Yet Another Smooth Scrolling - Allows scrolling activity to be customized

    Productivity

    Firebug - must have for web development and site management, provides tons and tons of data.
    FlagFox - Displays country flag where site is hosted, has a context menu that includes items such as whois, WOT repuataion, Alexa ranking, McAfee Advisor, Ping and Traceroute
    Goog All Sites - Use Google Search within a site instead of the sites search functions
    Google Global - See what the Google search results that you are viewing look like from different geographical locations
    Live HTTP Headers - View htt headers while browsing
    Page Speed - Page performance diagnostics
    RamBack - Clear page cache on the fly
    Selenium - Record, edit and play macros for testing
    ShowIP - Shows IP of current page in status bar.

    General ones:

    Download Statusbar - tidies up downloads to the status bar
    IE Tab Plus - invaluable - switches to IE's viewer, still within Firefox, for those sites that need IE to work properly
