    What is your favourite Firefox add-on?

    As we all know, Firefox comes to life when you add a few extensions. Everybody has his own must-have ones. Hence the question:

    What is your number 1 Firefox add-on; the one you cannot live without?
    And what is your runner-up?

    PS: let's not count the web developer and Firebug extensions as they are probably the unrivalled favourites among developers.

    #1 for me would be Tab Mix Plus closely followed by Faviconize Tab (with all tabs minimized by default) and NoScript.

    I assume that since you have excluded WebDev extension, the Firebug one should not count either?

    I cannot live without Greasemonkey or IE-Tab. Also, ScreenGrab is pretty useful!

    No it shouldn't be. Firebug is just as popular as the webdev.

    Is Tab Mix Plus compatible with Firefox 3? I think not yet

    This was my point
    I suggest you edit your starting post, so we don't get Firebug reply from people not reading further.

    Tab Mix Plus version for Firefox 3 can be found here:http://tmp.garyr.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7031

    Favorite extensions need two catagories:

    Can't live without,
    AdBlock Plus
    ScribeFire
    SEO for FireFox
    User Agent Switcher

    Just like to have
    BugmeNot
    Colorful Tabs

    User Agent Plus is the handiest thing when you live on a Mac and don't ever want to go back to using the PC. It will emulate IE just about perfectly, rendering those web pages designed for that MS product on your firefox and it seems to leave your other addons in place and working regardless.

    Bug Me Not just for the NYTimes registration page. :-)

    just my $.02 worth.

    I have simple needs, and I work in SSH terminal windows all day, so I have to say, my must have is:

    Auto Copy

    Which strangely enough does not support FireFox 3. I am just very use to having my selection automatically copied to the clipboard.

    I really like the "Undo Closed Tabs Button" add-on. It adds a button to the toolbar that you can click to retrieve a tab you accidentaly closed. It re-opens the tab you accidentaly closed and puts the tab in the same place it was. It also has a small arrow you can click to view and retrieve any of your recently closed tabs.

    Anybody know how to save your bookmarks made using Firefox in My Documents?

    I'm able to do this in IE as there is a registry change that can be made to designate where the bookmarks are stored at.

    I'm seriously considering switching to Firefox full time (tired if IE crashing), but I want to be able to control where my bookmarks are stored at since I utilize multiple back-ups of My Documents.
