    The download manager tool is very useful. That’d be my favorite if I had to pick one.

    Ad Block Plus is the tool that makes Internet 2.0 useable. When I visit news or entertainment sites with Ad Block Plus installed, I see no ads, no pop-ups, no animated treasure chests, no flashing “You’re an instant winner!” banners. This one single add on makes the difference between a useful, productive web browsing experience, or one filled with annoying and intrusive advertising. It’s so simple to install and use, you tend to forget it is installed on your system. Ad Block Plus – Don’t surf the Internet without it!

  6. Shahrukh Mughal

    The Keefox add-on has made safe passwords very easy to me. I used keepass for several years to sav e my passwords. However the Keefox add-on forces me to use it as an actual password base together with Firefox instead off its build-in password utility.

  16. Lacey

    I absolutely love No Squint! It seems that as the years go on, the print on the web pages gets smaller and harder to read. With No Squint, it restores the print size back to what it looked like 5 years ago! Thanks so much!

  17. Tanjona

    My favourite addons is down them all.

  21. Rafael Osornio

    Auto-Fill forms and Secure Login in combination make managing and remembering the passwords I require for multiple work logins, personal email and bill logins, etc. an actual manageable task without requiring the use of or need to sync multiple password managers. Even web based tools that Firefox won’t natively store password data for are easily managed and logged into with ease.

  22. Nicholas Micallef

    DownlloadHelper, Download Statusbar and, of course, GreaseMonkey

  23. Aly L

    Thank You.

  29. Sankar

    I would say life saving rather that favorite for the Add -on “Yandex TYC +Google PR indicator 1.3.4 .

    I was in a highly confused state to believe which website is genuine and which one is not to paying money online for registration .More over Firefox advanced versions do not support Google tool bar.

    I am glad that this add on has helped immensely to get the Google Page rank of visited websites and there by boosting up my business by registering to genuine websites .

    Thank you “Yandex TYC +Google PR indicator ”

    “Auto fill forms” also helped in my business development by filling appropriate information on the web site at a mouse click saving lot of time.

    Above all of these “THANK YOU FIREFOX ” You are “UNBEATABLE BROWSER “.

  30. Archie

    I have read “Don,t click on the Blue E” but the library staff still advise people “microsoft is the best”,what can YOU DO about this? Plus intrusions from messenger from an unknown source keep coming up on my yahoo a/c,I,m sure firefox can advise me how to trace this without giving away my p-word in the process,GO FIREFOX!

  33. enja

    My favorite add-ons are QuickFox Notes 2.7.3, ReminderFox and WOT.

  34. Nick

    Tile tabs has to be the best add-on ever, being able to watch youtube videos while viewing other sites seamlessly on the same page has changed my outlook on how browsers should be… THANK YOU

  35. Viviana

    My favourite add-on is ImTranslator. I can find all the unknown french or deutsch words during my study

  36. Rick

    The most important to me is security on internet and reliability of browser. FireFox add-ons enhance the whole experience. Number one would be Abine Taco, then Ad Block Plus, Ghostery, AnonymoX and WOT (but your browsing is logged in and stored on WOT), and Net Video Hunter for downloads of videos.

  37. Marcel

    I love the No Squint add on because it makes reading the print so much easier.

  38. Jenypher Brito

    Cofessions of a Picture junkie addict!

    Love pictures so even im not a pro(and far from that), love to have the perpective and learn from the people that are experts and others junkies like me, to be inspire and make me learn more about taking pics and edditing, I love to see pics from others on Cooliris tru liveshare, the dessing is so cute and easy to use, move flawless really nice job, also use others like fotofox to bring my junkie gallerys easy, in one click go to my contacs pics and see more pics from them easy and more quick than flickr.

    So i hope will continue coming more picture add ons for picture junkies like me.

  43. AYAS

    My Favorite Add on Is Download Helper And Add Block Plus ….

  44. navas

    my favorite is the downloadthemall add on because it is very useful for me and i like it……….!!!!!!!

  45. rakesh

    firebug very useful for html code…

  46. Supriya

    ThreadVis

    With the ThreadVis add-on, you get one of the coolest thread visualizers ever. Now, you’ll see email conversations organized into topic threads, just like on Gmail, but best of all there’s actually a topic timeline displayed in an interesting color-coded visual display, with each sender identified in the timeline by color.
    Click on one of the points in the thread timeline, and that email message pops-up. Basically – you can work through an entire email conversation from the convenience of one single email window.

  47. koushik

    My favorite add-on is the download helper because it saves my time and I don,t have to resort to other download tools anymore. It is really useful that I can download some videos which is prohibited by the web. I like it! good tool!

  48. Sasi Kiran

    Usually after watching any youtube video, I cannot watch it after i close it. But after using “Download youtube videos + 12.9.6″ i can download any youtube video with a single click and also i can choose the pixcel of that video. It helps me a lot.
    And also it has a screenshot option. with the help of screenshot i can take a webpage as a photo or pdf or a part of the webpage as a photo or i can copy a selected area of webpage.
    i think it is the best addon.
    Thank you.

  49. RAFIQUL

    1. Firebug
    2. Ad Block Plus
    3. WOT
    4. User Agent Switcher

  50. Anita

    I love the dictionary add-on. As English isn’t my first language, whenever I have problems with spellings I can rely on it.
    I also like Forecast Weather add-on. Great and spot on!!!
