    I'd put this in the firefox thread but I don't want it to get lost.

    what are your favorite plugins, what do those plug ins do, and if there are issues wit a plug in, you can help us avoid the issue, please let us know about those issues as well

    thanx in advance

    with the new release of Firefox the only plugins I will use when they are all compatible is adblock which is self explanatory and download manager tweak, which just adds more functionality to the built in download manager

    BugMeNot is always good - When you come to a page that makes you sign up to view it, just right click and it'll enter somebody elses. Useful if it's a page you dont frequent often.

    Super Drag and Go - My favorite - Just click on a link and drag it, and it's opened in a new tab. Great on news pages. Just scroll the main page and open a tab for the stories you wanna read.

    Close tab on double click - another favorite - just double click tab to close

    ieview - for those pages that wont open right in firefox, just right click and it'll open in ie

    Google preview - When a search is done in google an small jpg of the front page of each site is display beside the description.

    Tabbrowser Extensions - powerful control over tabs, I use it to make Firefox a truly SDI browser

    Weatherfox - weather forecast in the status bar

    And instead of an ad-blocking extension I use a custom userContent.css, which is available with other tips & tricks from here.

    IEview for these pages that cannot open in firefox, unfortunately is a must :(
    Allow right click for "locked" pages :cool:

    IEview - Already mentioned and explains itself really. http://ieview.mozdev.org/
    Nuke Anything - Its small so why not, it lets you remove any object from a web page, something flashing thats annoying you? Gone! http://ted.mielczarek.org/code/mozilla/
    Web Developer - Handy for completing forms on the fly and many many other things. http://www.chrispederick.com/work/firefox/webdeveloper/
    Word Count - Self explanatory as well. I Use it at work mostly. http://extensions.roachfiend.com/index.php
    Allow Right-Click - What it says. http://extensions.roachfiend.com/index.php
    BlockFall - Tetris! http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/clav/#blockfall
    All-in-One Gestures - Mouse gestures should just be built in to browsers anymore. http://perso.wanadoo.fr/marc.boullet/ext/extensions-en.html
    SpellBound - Spell checker. http://spellbound.sourceforge.net/
    Tabbrowser Extensions - For advanced tab configuration. Best thing is the session saving ability. I know there is Session Saver, but this does tabs as well so only one extension is needed. http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/xul/_tabextensions.html.en
