    I could not live without the Gmail notifier, i don't even bother using an email client anymore.

    People go on about security security and security, but this is where it's at and why firefox is so great - because you can make it your browser. firefox is awesome.

    User agent switcher - gives out fake user agents information to fool websites in to thinking your using IE, Opera etc http://chrispederick.com/work/useragentswitcher/

    Can be very useful if a website refuses to load unless you use IE or if your workplace is as daft as mine they block any other web browsers for security reasons - I know the amount of times I've told them they'd do better blocking IE!!

    I don't think it is a good idea to have that number of extensions installed, as there is a high chance that one of them will cause some sort of instablility. I used to have that number installed, and got all sorts of random crashes. Then I un installed most of them, and got much better stability.
