31, with about 10 active at a time, and a few that are outdated (Firefox 1.0).

A couple are redundant ('Dictionary Search'/'Dict', 'IE View'/'IE Tab'). I like to compare the latest versions, and it is easier to disable it, and let it update, than to uninstall/reinstall, and have to keep checking for updates manually.

Here is the list, my favorites are in bold.

Adblock BBCode Dict ForecastFox Launchy SessionSaver .2 Stop-or-Reload Button Wayback WorkOffline Image Zoom Media Player Connectivity (an almost must on Linux these days.)

All-In-One Gestures CuteMenus2 (Disabled because the themes have good menus...) Dictionary Search FirefoxView Foxytunes FoxyTunes -Aqua Bubbles Skin IE View IE Tab Menu Editor mozImage MR Tech Local Install Resize Search Box Titlebar Tweaks (fun to change the titlebar to "Microsoft Firefox", or "Google Death Browser", etc...) U.S Homeland Security Threat Level Filer Extension (forgot what it is for now...) Show Image (doesn't always work right...) Tabbrowser Preferences saves "about:config" editing) Open Link in... Mozilla Archive Format (Firefox 1.0 only) Talkback (Mozilla's bug reporting tool...)

I quite like not having many addons. No themes either, since I don't use those buttons.

None. I have vanilla FireFox, I prefer opera. Probably just because I started using it before I used FF, so it seems more natural.

Yeah, you have to install, and configure atleast 8 different extensions to get the functionality of Opera, and they don't look as good.

But they work, and it is easier to get more functionality out of them. Forecast fox for instance. I never understood the conecept of weather on the desktop, but weather in a "web browser" is a great idea. Since I'm only online when browsing the web. Plus it doesn't come with all the junk that the IE weather bars do.

Then there is BBcode, a very usefull tool for working with Bullentin Boards, such as Gaming Forums. It made it so much easier to multi-quote before the upgrade, and makes it easier to paste images directly into a post.

And finally "Wayback". Find a link that has gone dead? Wayback it, and find out what "used" to be there. No more dead links, just slow ones, with few images.
