Firefox Extensions Must Have List

I keep ending up on different computers. If I'm allowed (ie no one is looking), I install Firefox. But then I find that the interface isn't the way I like it. So once I write this post, I can come here and see what extensions and such to install.

Extensions that I've got on a computer or two, but I don't consider critical yet:

  • Greasemonkey - Scripting language that does lots of cool stuff that I don't know about. I don't actually use this, but I like the idea of it.
  • MapIt! - Does something with maps; I'm not sure I've ever used it, but it is installed on one system. Someone hacked in Google maps support, I see.
  • FirefoxView - Put a menu item in IE to view link Firefox
  • Bandwidth Tester - Seems like a useful idea, but why not go to a website instead?
  • Plain Text Links
  • Print It!
  • TinyURL Creator
  • Web Developer
  • WebmailCompose
  • Duplicate Tab

Other tweaks I like to make:

  • Use small icons on the toolbars
  • Download automatically to My Downloads
  • Configure Tabbrowser Preferences to open everything in new tabs
What am I missing?
