One of the best parts of Mozilla Firefox are the add-ons. I'm quite fond of a few. What are yours?

My favorites:

-Video DownloadHelper - allows downloading videos from Youtube and other video sites. Doesn't seem to work on Yahoo's music site, sadly.

-Adblock Plus, Adblock Filter Uploader, and Adblock Plus Element Hiding Helper - the perfect trifecta to keep (most) ads blocked.

-DownThemAll!Allows to download a group of links off a single page. It's useful for images and stuff like that.

Oh boy, lets see here...

Foxkeh Theme https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6198 - I really like the little animated fox tail

Read It Later https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7661 - For that page you don't like enough to bookmark, but don't have time to read now.

StumbleUpon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/138 - which is really cool, and like putting the internet on shuffle. This add on wastes a lot of my time.

I can't live without Adblock, and I don't really like life without Corliss Preview, which gives you a glimpse of what a link contains before clicking on it.

GMail Manager provides easy access to my accounts (I have 3 for some reason)

Image Zoom lets me zoom in and out of particular images using the right-click menu

Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer does what it sounds like and automatically keeps my bookmarks the same on both my home and work computers.

Tab Mix Plus adds a lot of options to the tabbed browser function in Firefox. I could probably live without this, but it adds a lot of shortcuts and features that I'm very used to by now.

My favorite add-on is Forecastfox (addons.mozilla.org), but as I was looking for the URL, I came across Forecastbar Enhanced (addons.mozilla.org), which looked nice and I may have to try.

Also, I'll second the love for foxmarks (addons.mozilla.org) and I've been trying out Tab Mix Plus (addons.mozilla.org). I like the increased control over how my tabs work, but it hasn't become a necessity yet.

Finally, I use the Pitch Dark (addons.mozilla.org) theme for Firefox. The darker colors are easier on the eyes.

The Download Statusbar https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/26

All the downloads are managed on the statusbar and you can set options for time remaining and percent done, among others. I like it better than the standard download manager.

FireFTP https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/684

For accessing my webspace. It's better than most free FTP programs I've used in the past.

I use one called the 1 Click Youtube Downloader - it saves those FLVs as MP4 video files so I can watch them on my PSP when I'm out and about. It's great for a laugh on the way to work.

A couple of years ago, a crazy wind storm caused a tree to fall...which knocked out the local cable lines in my area. It took them damn near six hours to fix the outage and get service back up and running.
