The extensions I am currently using are:

User Agent Switcher - Allows you to change the User Agent that your browser appears as.


BBCode - Inserts the text formatted with bbcode (what we use here at bc) into a forum message.

PrGoogleBar - The google bar for Firefox. This particular one includes the pagerank status for the webpage.

Gmail Notifier - Notifies you if you have mail in Gmail.

IE View 0.83 - Adds a menu option to view the current page in Internet Explorer.

FoxyTunes 0.61 - Control a media player from Firefox. Supports WMP, Winamp, itunes, musicmatch, and many more.

Download Manager Tweak 0.6.0 - Changes the appearance of the download manager.


Image Zoom 0.1.7 - Allows you to zoom images. Excellent!

WeatherFox 0.5.1-Get international weather forecasts from weather.com, and display it in any toolbar or statusbar with this highly customizable extension.

FirefoxView 0.31.1-Open Firefox with the current page or a selected link displayed in Internet Explorer. Adds "View in Firefox" menu items to the content and link context menus. Useful when you have started your browsing session in Internet Explorer by mistake ;-)

I, also, use IE View and BBCode.

There are new extensions every week that add great functionality to both FF and Mozilla. A review of some of the more useful extensions can be found at:

SpoofStick - which displays domain info, and helps detect spoofed websites
http://texturizer.net/firefox/extensions/#spoofstick

I also use TinyURL and BBcode creators.

But since upgrading I can't seem to find any of the old themes - have they gone? (sorry - off topic I know!)

RSS feeds on the left side of the browser makes reading headlines quick and easy

http://adblock.mozdev.org/dev.html
I can't live without Adblock,especially on msn sites that are FULL of graphic ads.

Also I'd like to point out that Firefox is very smart.There are a few sites that I can't remember the web site names for so I just type the name in Firefox and it finds the page.

example: gyach

There are others,but I'll let you try them out.
