Well I suck at spelling so the main add-on I get is "Allspell". Pretty much give you the ablity to spell check any text you enter in the browser.

Please note I don't think it's installed on my Linux box, I have to get around to installing it.

<u><b>And the rest...</b></u>
All of my extensions on this PC, plus AdBlock and the updater.
  • - GreaseMonkey (applies user scripts to sites)
    - FoxyTunes (status bar controls for media players)
    - FasterFox (performance tweaks for faster browsing)
    - Customize Google (Google options, such as removing ads)
    - Backgroundimage Saver (saves background images, great for YTMND)

    - BBCodeXtra (right-click context menu for quickly setting HTML and BBcode tags)

I wouldn't bother installing a spellcheck addon, since Firefox 2 should be made be released within a month or two & already has spellcheck built-in. (Firefox 2 beta 2 is already available for download)

by far the most nifty extension (if you use tabs a lot) is mouse gestures. it's just like the gestures in opera except customizable. it lets you close tabs, open new tab, switch tabs, go back and forward, and tons of other stuff by just right clicking and moving the mouse
