Best Firefox Extensions
I have my favorites:
  • Flashblok -- prevents those flash animations to ever start downloading
  • Tab Mix Plus -- Extreme control over tabs
  • FlashGot -- for integration with GetRight
  • FasterFox -- accelerates Firefox mighty good.

What are yours?

apart from the already mentioned adblock and flashgot I also use the following for any new install:

- NoScript
- SecurePassword Generator
- SwitchProxy Tool
- SpellBound (for FF 1.5.0.4 visit MozillaZine forums).
- Session Manager (will be integrated in FF 2.0).

SearchPluginHacks has been useful (to remove unwanted search plugins) and Session Manager  can be useful, but also annoying at times.

--alt-presets are there for a reason! These other switches DO NOT work better than it, trust me on this.

Does anyone know if there's an extension that will block favicons, or at the least remove them from the bookmarks file without having to resort to manually editing it?

Use the Favicon Picker extension, then use that to clear the icon. Right-click the Bookmark, Properties, Erase.

It works like a charm, and is now one of my favourite extensions as well.

Noone mentioned Mouse Gestures yet? That is one of my must-have-addons.
Tab preview also is very useful

Google Toolbar for Firefox 2.0.20060606W

Ridiculous version number!

Why, because the version number format includes the date or because the date is 6.6.06?

It gets updated frequently.  Now it's 2.1.20060713W and FireFox is also slated to go version 2 in the near future.  I think you can get a FF 2.0 beta to play with here.

All-In-One-Gestures

Compact Menu

Menu-Editor

Adblock Plus

Autocopy

ReloadEvery

Download-Statusbar

_____________________

All in all, this gets firefox down to as minimal as:  Titlebar, Menu-Button, URL-Editbox, Displayarea, Statusbar incl. adblock-icon

No menus, except a minimal contextmenu. Only one toolbar-button. Everything else is done via mouse (incl. opening/closing) sidebar.

I am even thinking about auto-hiding the statusbar as well - but last time i tried it, it resultet in display-glitches when scrolling.
