5?

All-in-One-Gestures
MenuX
Minimize to Tray
Options Menu
Tab Mix Plus ( I only switched from Tab Browser Extensions last week, I actually think it is superior, just HUGE)

10?

All-in-One-Sidebar
Better Search (The one I always use to show how cool FF is)
Bookmark Menu Button
ReminderFox
IE Tab

Out of 59 or so installed.

This doesn't include Adblock Plus, NoScript, or CookieSafe, but they don't count. I mean, if you asked what clothes you liked to wear skydiving, you woudn't count the parachute! <g>

I also just started using Scrapbook, and I'm already wondering why it doesn't replace bookmarks.

Definitely. . .

Something Awful Last Read extension (yes, I'm a goon.)
Adblock Plus + Adblock Filterset G
ForecastFox Enhanced
FoxyTunes
Menu Editor

Without them, I don't know that FF would have HALF its appeal for me.

Hi killer ninjas,

What is that first one you mentioned? I couldn't find it on addons.mozilla.org
My wife tells me I'm a goon every once in a while so I think I may like it whatever it is.

Order maybe of most common usage :-

FDM - use all time for RS links
Download Helper - great for YouTube, GoogleVid etc - no hassle at all just works
Flashblock - superb - just puts an F in place of flash, if you want it hit the F, otherwise just ignore
FEBE - invaluable and easy to use - every time I add an extension or change bookmarks I update
QuickJava - only run with JS when necessary, and almost NEVER with Java
AdBlockPlus - probably use this more than I think I do :-)
Greasemonkey - great for those little extra scripts you need from time to time
YesPopups - another of those probably used a lot more often than I realize !!

Anyone know a way of getting a different search engine on two different FF windows or tabs ??

Great forums !!

Well, yes . You put two search bars in your FF. :)

Try the following (I just googled this, I didnt try it for myself):

Unfortunatelly, it's only compatible with FF 1.5 - 3.0a3
