Hi honda2010,


The recommended Addons you see in Firefox are just suggestions, you don't need to install them. Picking Addons, as Broni mentioned, is a personal choice. Visit the Firefox Addons Homepage, there are literally thousands to choose from.

3 good ones to get you started, and which will improve browsing security (in Firefox);

WOT (Web of Trust)
Adblock Plus
No-Script


You may find No-Script a little annoying at first, but try to stick with it, probably the best Firefox security Addon there is.

Any ones you install and don't like are easily un-installed again.

Thanks to both of you for your input. I downloaded the 3. I will see how the no script goes. Thanks!
