Xmarks is my must-have
Video DownloadHelper is also another that i cant live without.
there are a few others, adblock/noscript, greasemonkey, and WOT also help
Bit of an oxymoron if you ask me
Good, wouldn't want anybody to have a tough time looking for them.
Seiously, you caved in and use the preset folders?
Was thinking more about organisation than knowing where to find them and no, I have different folders, just thought it was easier to get my point across
Was looking for a Multirow-type addon for ages. :| Cheers for posting that...
+1 for Xmarks!
Down Them All is also pretty good. Simple Boss Key too >_>
Xmarks, FireSomething (for lols), Firesizer, IEView (for those pesky sites that still don't work), and oldbar.
xmarks, adblock plus, downthemall, firegestures, autohide statusbar and auto menubar.
Also multiproxy switch and create an SSH tunnel to home for use at work
Opera created speed dial not Chrome
you forgot ad block plus
I can't live without Smoothwheel makes scrolling so much nicer. I use chrome at home but am still stuck with FF at work due to all my dev tools.
Would that make him a bad person? What's wrong with using the preset folders?
I use Snaplinks (or Multi Links) - they both allow you to draw a box round a bunch of links and open in tabs, both have their advantages.
Xmarks for password sync mainly, thinking about changing to Weave for the tabs sync - when it existed Google Browser Sync was good for that.
Distrust - a bit like the In Private mode but I can keep all my currently open tabs open - really helpful - and for while it is turned on, your history works as usual
Close n forget - had a Stumble Upon site you don't want in your history? Click the button and it all goes away.
I have changed my Awesomebar to be on the same row as all the menus to save space, I cannot get enough!
What Scawp said - Speed Dial was in Opera way, way, before any of the other browsers chose to copy it.
Awesome add-on, but I doubt they "forgot it". After all, they rely on advertising on the site. Then posting about an ad-removal add-on would be foolish.
On topic- I.E.Tab (which I assume is similar to krikkits IEview mentioned above) is an absolute must have. It even works with some (shockingly old and poor) website's i use that for work that "only" work on IE6.
In order of favouritism:
1-click youtube downloader
url shrink easy
add to search bar
nice list, nice thread
looks like I have stuff to test
-download statusbar (much more convenient than the default download window)
-mixtabplus (i use it to put my tabs at the bottom of firefox)
-the rest were named already
edit: wow lastpass is impressive ! Hhighly recommended to anyone who was hesitating to try it. Give it a shot, you won't regret it
in the order I install when faced with a new install:
Adblock Plus (seriously, how can anyone use the web without this?)
XMarks (sync your book marks between desktop and laptop, bonus points for allowing you to have slightly different bookmarks at home and work)
Gmail Notifier (because I can't be arse to keep checking my inbox)
Download them All (allows some changes in your download folder, but also handy for downloading all 20 pictures on a particular page etc.)
FxIF (displays EXIF in the image properties)
Popup Alt (gives you the IE mouse over text)
Xmarks for me, very good!
The uTorrent thing is interesting. Have you looked in to the 'WebGUI' that utorrent offers? It allows you to control Utorrent through your browser on another PC in the LAN. You can copy a link location and just paste it in there and it will download it for you. Also useful to check on status or pause the download when you want to game at night (Downloads at night on my schedule). Also means you can access it on any PC.
