It's moved from General Chat now. No worries.

As for add ons the only one I used to use is No Script. But I don't use Firefox anymore.

I use NoScript and Cookie Whitelist. They are both a bit of a bother, but still very effective.

I also use an updated Hosts file -- which is not a Firefox addon, but still part of online security.

I use NoScript and AdBlock Plus. The bar that appeared on every page due to NoScript got annoying after a while, but I just made the option to make it not do that, so now FireFox is safe and less annoying!

I don't use Firefox so I don't need to worry about it's inherent insecurity.

WOT, AdBlock Plus, KeyScrambler, and SiteAdvisor (I know WOT does its job, but I like a second opinion).

I don't actually use it because it's too restrictive (for example you can't access YouTube - I'd possibly die) but for security and privacy you can't really beat Tor: www.torproject.org
