In a little more detail...

Firefox & Thunderbird user since 2005.

Firm believer in quality over quantity.

Recommending Firefox ESR for its more predictable behaviour.

The less add-ons, the better.

My Reviews

NoScript Security Suite

Thank god for NoScript Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I regularly visit news and corporate websites.

Unfortunately, and not just recently, there's an utter lack of restraint on the use of java script on most of those sites.
It's hard for my PC (and my nerves) to cope with the resulting sluggish performance. Not to speak of the privacy violations.

NoScript saves the day.
It's not wholly intuitive, it sometimes blocks more than it should, and some of its defaults could be closer to reality.
But it does block java script in the most comprehensive and transparent way possible.

Recommended to anyone but the most tech-unsavvy users.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.6). 

uBlock Origin

Essential add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

uBlock0 is the one extension we install for every single Firefox user in our organisation.

Once installed, you hardly need to touch it; it provides sensible defaults right out-of-the-box, while automatically protecting you from malware ads and trackers.
We found it blocks more ads by default than Adblock Plus (though that's also a great add-on).

I'd recommend it to every Firefox user out there - be it grandma or the student next door.

@Raymond: Do you accept donations?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.13.8). 

VimFx

Highly recommended Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Easy to use, unobtrusive, does one thing and does it well.

No harm in giving it a try; installation happens on-the-fly (no Firefox restart required).

If you're like me and don't know vi, but have wrist problems from using the mouse from 9 to 5:
Just hitting "f" to open a link helps a lot.

@Developers: How can we donate to you guys?
