Every now and again, I list the extensions, add-ons and other bits and pieces I'm currently using. It's dead useful every time I need to teach a new computer to walk and talk. :)
- Adblock Plus: Exactly what it sounds like, it blocks all those annoying pop-ups and flashing ads on your screen. Awesomely.
- Session Manager: Saves your session, so you don't have to find all those tabs again. Can't do internet without this, seriously.
- ColorfulTabs: Now I can keep all my open tabs from one fandom/website together and colour coded with the same colour. The AO3 is pink. :)
- Tree Style Tab: I've only recently started using this one, in place of Tab Mix Plus. I'm liking it. Used in combination with ColorfulTabs, this is a great way to sort your tabs so they are quick and easy to find. Plus it shrinks and expands them in groups. It took a bit of practice to get used to, and it does eat memory, but it's awesome.
- Tab Mix Lite: I pretty much just have this so I can specify how I want the "close tab" options to work.
- Tab Wheel Scroll: When your mouse isn't pointed inside a tab, it will scroll through your tabs rather than up and down the page. Neat.
- Copy Link Text (CoLT): Indispensable. I've been using this forever. It basically expands your copy/paste options, so you can choose just the text, just the link, or both. Awesome.
- DownloadHelper: So I can archive awesome songvids wherever I find them.
- Diigo Toolbar: So I can bookmark all the cool stuff and access it anywhere.
- Fox Clocks: Tracks what time it is in other parts of the world, as unobtrusive text at the bottom of your browser.
- GreaseMonkey: Makes other stuff work. You'll only need this if you use specific scripts for Firefox -- they will say when you download and install them. I use it for Google Account Multi-Login, and Word Count.
- Pocket: Used to be ReadLater, and is the same service with a different name. Allows you to bookmark things to read later on other computers/devices.
- English (Australian) Dictionary: \o/
- Plug-ins: Mostly I just have the standard ones that Firefox recommends, but I also have the Google Earth and VLC Web plug-ins.
