Loved the Firefox article in this months mag. The extensions section had some great new extension suggestions for me to try.

However.... (yes it's the inevitable "you missed my favourites" bit)... I was surprised that the only 3 extensions I always install were all missing. While I'm sure you probably wanted to show us something new, I bet there are lots of people who aren't aware of these little beauties...

Adblock plus - essential in these days of 1001 pieces of flashing glaring dross added to every webpage.

Xmarks - so I can access all my saved bookmarks after an install

Lastpass - same as xmarks, but for my passwords.

I couldn't live without them. I'm sure there are lots of people out there that feel the same.

Cheers

+1 for Adblock plus.
I also use Fireftp, Noscript and MediaStealer

Have to agree with the rest of you. I love me some Adblock plus.

Perhaps we should make a list of our top 5-10 extensions that we use.
Maybe we can show others a few that they might be missing ?

OK I'll start......(In no real order)

01. Adblock plus
02. No script
03. Xmarks
04. Downthem all (Awesome download manager !!)
05. Video download helper


I'll be checking out Lastpass though, cheers Heiowge.

So, anymore for anymore ??
