Best Extensions
Making the most of Firefox is all about adding extensions. If you don't take advantage of them you're really missing out! Here are my top choices. Wouldn't load a computer with out them (not to mention firefox).
  • Adblock - blocks ads on websites, pop-ups and even most flash based ads
  • Tabbrowser Extensions - must have for making the most of your tab browsing experience. "single window" option is a must
  • gmail notifier - sits in the bottom tray and lets you know if you have email in your gmail account
  • SpellBound - Checks the spelling of highlighted text anywhere in firefox. Available in other languages also. I use English and French
  • ieview - adds a option on right clicking links to have it open directly in IE for those less than cooperating websites
  • weatherfox - gives you the weather in the statusbar/toolbar
  • LiveLines - adds rss feeds to live book marks or other rss feeds with an RSS icon on the status bar
  • SessionSaver - restores your last browsing session
  • Greasemonkey - user script manager
  • User Agent Switcher - adds a menu and toolbar button to switch the user agent information that a browser sends when asking for a website, you can specify the browser you want it to think you're using
  • ColorZilla - has an eyedropper for finding out the rgb % or hex number of a color anywhere with in the firefox browser, a color picker, and a page zoom
If you have problems ever installing extensions or themes, sometimes the install box won't come up, right click and save as... to save it to your hard drive and then drag and drop it into the corresponding extension or left frame of the theme box.
