Video DownloadHelper by mig

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 6,503 reviews

4,452,660 users

The easy way to download and convert Web videos from hundreds of YouTube-like sites.
Collector's Note Though this seems to be geared partly towards "private" sites, it works great at most, but not all, video sites. Bear in mind that content delivery sites like YouTube are constantly inventing new ways to prevent users from copying videos to their machines, but this add-on tends to do what it can to keep up with this "arms race". I require videos to be available offline as I rarely have access to broadband. I am not a pirate, just someone who has to live with dial-up.

NoScript Security Suite by Giorgio Maone

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 1,574 reviews

2,146,154 users

The best security you can get in a web browser!
Allow active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS and Clickjacking attacks.
Collector's Note Must Have!! Even if you don't use the per-host blocking feature, NoScript still adds plenty of cutting-edge security features to Firefox that ought to be included in the browser. Rather than wait for FF to include such features, the NoScript author adds such things on a continual basis. This is probably the best add-on ever, so please donate to the project!!

LastPass Password Manager by LastPass

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 1,341 reviews

745,753 users

LastPass, an award-winning password manager, saves your passwords and gives you secure access from every computer and mobile device.
Collector's Note Must Have!! One of the first client-encrypted password managers is still the best. Not only does it provide top-notch password protection, but it automatically logs you into the sites you visit if you like.

Flagfox by Dave G

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 652 reviews

525,145 users

Displays a country flag depicting the location of the current website's server and provides a multitude of tools such as site safety checks, whois, translation, similar sites, validation, URL shortening, and more...

BetterPrivacy-signed by IKRG

Remove or manage a new and uncommon kind of cookies, better known as LSO's.The BetterPrivacy safeguard offers various ways to handle Flash-cookies set by Google, YouTube, Ebay and others...
Collector's Note Flash cookies quickly became the norm once people started blocking regular cookies, so this is yet another progression in the "arms race" between consumers who want the internet to be free and the sites that have to find ways to hide the costs in their ad banners, etc.

Speed Dial by Josep del Rio

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 1,271 reviews

378,805 users

Direct access to your most visited websites
Collector's Note Opera has had this feature for years and still has the best user interface there is, but Firefox simply has more development resources and better add-ons, so I really like add-ons that make Firefox feel more like Opera. This one works great.

Xmarks Sync by Xmarks Inc.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 2,557 reviews

337,623 users

Xmarks is the #1 bookmarking and open tab add-on. Keep your bookmarks, and open tabs backed up and synchronized across computers and browsers. Mobile phones with Premium access. Utilize LastPass to sync passwords!
Collector's Note Owned by LastPass, this add-on was once Foxmarks, which invented the idea of synching bookmarks, tabs, and history across various devices. FF 4 has a built-in Synch feature now that does most of this while adding browser preferences, but I still prefer Xmarks as it offers more options and a better UI.

Show Selected Images by konbu

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 14 reviews

12,970 users

Allows Firefox to reload multiple images that failed to be displayed.

ScrapBook by Gomita

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 866 reviews

156,541 users

Helps you to save Web pages and organize the collection.
Collector's Note Let's me save entire pages for offline viewing. Disk cache can't be relied upon to bring back visited sites, but ScrapBook does a great job of saving the page and even sub-links if you desire.

RightToClick by IKRG

Stops javascript annoyances such as forbidden right click, forbidden text selection or disabled features like copy/save images from web-pages.

Tree Style Tab by Piro (piro_or)

Show tabs like a tree.
Collector's Note I've never found a "perfect" tab manager, but this add-on comes closest. I've always preferred Opera's tab management system over Firefox's, but Tree Style Tab does make things a whole lot better for people that prefer tabs on the side of the window. This probably includes anyone with more than a dozen tabs open at any one time.

Fasterfox Lite by Wips.com s.r.o.

Experimental

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 251 reviews

Fasterfox Lite: Performance and network tweaks for Firefox, without the Enhanced Prefetching. This is a fork from the original "Fasterfox".
Collector's Note I actually use Fasterfox Lite, but that add-on wouldn't show up for me for some reason. This add-on merely provides convenient access to settings that already exist in FF. Makes it far easier to manage your connections whether you are on dial-up or a T1.

CacheViewer by benki

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 223 reviews

59,824 users

This extenion is GUI Front-end of "about:cache"...
Collector's Note As of this writing, this add-on must be modified to work with FF 4.0.1, but there are directions in the reviews (May 2011).

NoSquint by Jason Tackaberry

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 483 reviews

235,608 users

NoSquint is no longer maintained. :(
Collector's Note I currently have this disabled, because FF 4 offers whole-page zooming by default. This add-on remembers your zoom settings for every site you visit, however, which can be very helpful at times.

Toolbar Buttons by Michael B.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 322 reviews

120,906 users

Adds toolbar buttons to the customize toolbar window in several programs including Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey. Some of the buttons make commonly preformed actions quicker, others add new functionality.
Collector's Note Firefox doesn't come with a good selection of optional buttons (Opera offers lots), so this add-on attempts to rectify that situation.
