Disconnect

Near perfect! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

You may want to make it somewhat clear what Green and Grey mean, because really, I had to look that up and it was hidden somewhere way down a page. "Green or checked means the requests are blocked. Gray or unchecked means they’re unblocked."
Other than that, great improvement for me after having used Ghostery (and the mentally draining mess it creates) for years.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.1). 

Adblock Edge

Crucial against info overload and tracking! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Invaluable add-on. And one of the main reasons to use Firefox over others is that this works at its best for Firefox users. Add-ons like this have saved the internet user experience many times over.

LastPass Password Manager

Crucial and the ultimate safety companion! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Flawless functional add-on, uses pre-internet encryption, very heavy unbreakable keys stored where they need to be stored. NSA must hate these developers! Generates passwords that are *as robust as you set them to be*. They can not be any less robust than what you would make up on your own, in most cases the generated passwords will be A LOT better than what you currently use for your valuable log-ins.
Have tested this to the bone using wireshark and other tools, since it's closed source (for the most part). It ends up being the best out there. Simply unbeatable. A life-saver. Best of all: You can't lose your stuff, not even when they stop existing.

Stylish

One of the best inventions since the www itself! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fluently lets me enjoy blinding white pages again by offering me styles that are dark! Never a problem if you carefully pick the well-maintained userstyles.

Xmarks Sync

Does not work with different profiles! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

First of all, I'm a highly experienced computer/IT-tech, so if software does not do what it says it does, I'm angry.
This is the case for Xmarks. I work on many different computers, and I created many different profiles for them on the xmarks systems, in the hope that I could back-up my bookmarks somewhere safe, reliably and dependably. I'm a long time user of LastPass, so I expected this to be at least as good as that, since the concept is much simpler and requires fewer security measures (as long as you don't use the passwords syncing via xmarks).
Well, several times in a row, even while I had clearly connected/linked the right machines with their respective Profile on My Xmarks server-side, the syncing led me to suddenly get other profile's bookmarks on a machine where I had just added a couple of valuable NEW bookmarks I wanted to save to the cloud. They were lost, due to xmarks not uploading them. I can't see how hard it is to see that one of either side has NEW entries and should therefore be going the other way during syncing. Conclusion: After giving them a couple of days to respond to my problems, which they did not do, and seeing the same issue appear a few times more, I'm sorry to say that Xmarks is giving LastPass a really BAD reputation. This isn't even in alpha-stage yet, if I would lead this project towards stable state. So my advice:
Don't try it! Or be very sure you know where to find your own backups of your bookmarks files on each and every local machine.
And no, it isn't caused by (or related to) either Chrome or Firefox or the internet connectivity, which they are really eager to blame every chance they get.
This software isn't ready for release yet. It's annoyingly independable.

Stylish

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Those people rating this with one star must be insane or have lost their minds! This is one of the best Add-Ons that ever surfaced for Firefox. Works fluently for many websites, with a huge amount of choice and offerings and no performance hit whatsoever: http://userstyles.org/

Configuration Mania

Greatest collection yet Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It has some minor details and documentation issues to work out, but other than that it replaced a lot of crappy config and tweaking add-ons in one go!
