    ABP - Adblock Plus

    an example of its use - I see Real Jock (and everything else) without any ads.
    Sites load much quicker too as a result.

    Flashblock.

    Gives you the choice of whether to allow any particular Flash media to play.

    I guess it significantly speeds up browsing, given the prevalence of Flash for everything. Basically Flash ads, sometimes several, appear on 90% of pages, and these are blocked.

    I keep keep the add-ons to a minimum. Too many add-ons will make Firefox slow and bloated.

    Adblock Plus.. blocks those annoying ads. It's also great for blocking annoying javascript ads.

    NoScript.. pretty handy at preventing evil javascript from executing. like porn pop-ups, browser cross script attacks. also blocks javascript ads.

    Web Developer.. if you do website coding or design, this is pretty useful.

    Firebug.. another helpful tool for website designers. I had to get rid of this one though. For some reason, it slows down Firefox if you have the Web Developer add-on installed concurrently.
