List: My Favorite Firefox Add-ons

Firefox has lots of add-ons that make web browsing more pleasurable. There are many I have not explored, but these are my current favorites:

Tree Style Tab
Lets me have the tabs down the left side in a collapsable tree view. Saves screen real estate and makes more tabs readily accessible.
I find myself trying to use the same mouse gestures in other tools. I wish I could get this as a desktop add-on.
Hides ads: rose-colored glasses for web browsing!
Old habits die hard: muscle memory lasting longer than other types.
Nice if you are trying to grab several large files at once.
Great for figuring out why web pages don’t work.
Adds some capability to the address field.
Searchbar Autosizer
Makes the search field big when you use it.
Keeps bookmarks synced between machines. I appreciate it when I move into a new computer.
Integrates the KeePass password manager with Firefox. Now I feel at least a little bit more secure.
Makes me feel like I’m not being tracked quite so much, but it breaks some Google things, so I have to turn off the Google blocking for Google Maps or logging in to a Google account.
Currently disabled. Hasn’t kept up with the Firefox release cycle.

You can get add-ons for Firefox by typing about:addons in your Firefox browser’s address field.
