I don't use Firefox very often, just on two or three sites only. I always have these add-ons and can't stand it if I don't have them.

Accessibar (To change the background and text color)

Adblock Plus

ColorfulTabs (This looks nice!)

Fasterfox Lite

Flagfox (To know where the sites are)

Flashblock

FlashGot

I used to use Toolbar Buttons too but decided to remove it recently.

Spacesurfer,

When I right click on the Tab bar, I can undo close tab. Then, why do you have to use the Undo Closed Tab Button?

Edit: spelling correction

I prefer a single left-click period, rather than a right-click, then move the mouse to left-click on "Undo Closed Tab".

Way better when using a laptop! Especially when you need to reopen several closed tabs.

You don't use a mouse with your laptop, Spacesurfer? I only open 4 or 5 tabs when using Firefox. And usually, I undo a closed tab which I close by accident. I don't close several tabs and then reopen them! Why not leaving the tabs open if you still need to work on them?

Bolded addons are ones which I find particularly useful/majorly recommend to others.

  • Adblock Plus
  • DownloadHelper
  • DownThemAll
  • Firebug
  • Google Gears
  • Live HTTP Headers
  • Logmein Plugin
  • Redirector
  • ReloadEvery
  • Screengrab
  • Stealther
  • StumbleUpon (disabled due to procrastination problems)
  • Tab Preview
  • Tamper Data
  • User Agent Switcher
  • Web Developer's Toolbar
  • Zotero (excellent for students)

When people ask me why I don't use [other browser], I tell them that until it has all these capabilities or addons to do the same thing as these, I'm not interested :thumbup
