Here's a list of Firefox 2.0 extensions that I've found to be REALLY useful:

<a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722' target='_blank'>No Script</a> - makes firefox several times safer. It gives you the option to block Javascript, Java, flash, and other plug-ins from automatically running on websites that aren't approved. A bit annoying actually... but better safe than sorry.

<a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/39' target='_blank'>Mouse Gestures</a> - totally cool. You can run Firefox commands (such as new tab, page forward, page back, refresh, etc.) by setting (customizable!) distinct mouse strokes our key combinations.

<a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/327' target='_blank'>Tweak Network</a> - Allows you to tweak your network settings (duh) a bit more than default firefox will allow, opening the possibility of making it run a bit faster.

<a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201' target='_blank'>DownThemAll!</a> - A download manager built into firefox!

<a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/26' target='_blank'>Download Statusbar</a> - Annoyed by the firefox download box that opens in a separate window? This one integrates the download box into the same firefox window you're currently using.

<a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865' target='_blank'>Adblock Plus</a> - reliable pop-up blocker.

<a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419' target='_blank'>IE Tab</a> - Totally useful for opening pages that don't work so well on firefox. This add-on allows you to open Internet Explorer AS A FIREFOX TAB.

Oh and as for my browser skin, I'm using <a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/72' target='_blank'>Noia 2.0 eXtreme</a>.

Sweet! Until Microsoft comes to its senses and starts shipping its Windows boxes with Firefox instead of IE, this will be a very useful tool for me.

Just found out about a really fun firefox extension called FireNES.

It basically allows you access to most any NES game you can think of from a browser sidebar. The games are run on a java emulator, and hosted on a site (requires internet connection). They're tiny though. It's my favorite extension already Laughing
