You don't need any at all!

But some are cool I and everyone else on this board (yes I am in a possition to say that) can say that you would want to get adblock (if you argue with me on this we got issues).

Then you will want forcast fox

Default Well

No Script - disables all javascript on websites. You have to enable it on certain sites etc. online banking....I only allow on sites that i need to and i am very careful.

Foxytunes-allows you to control your jukebox from firefox. I use musicmatch box and this little program works great...

MediaConnectivity is great for viewing .wma file on websites. All you do is click the play sign and Windows media comes up and plays the video. You do have to set the target..

IE View- brings up Internet Explorer for the sites that don't like firefox

Default Well

Its kinda personal. Some website have those annoying full page flash ads and they really annoy me. This extension just stops them from showing. All you have to do is press the play button and they turn on.
