I don't use any add ons. I figure it is simpler that way.

But I am interested to see what others say!

I am loving persona's right now. I have the cutest brindle boxer puppy and it looks almost like the puppy I am getting in April. I also like the colorful tabs.

  • AdBlockPlus (blocks those pesky ads) the one I can't function without
  • LeechBlock (lets me shut down distracting websites for a few hours so I can focus on my work)
  • Multifox (lets you be logged into more than one account at a time (no, I'm not sock puppetting here! I use it to manage my fb and DD's at the same time, or multiple gmail accounts))
  • Fast Dial (a sort of bookmarks page thingie)
  • personas (sort of like themes, but lightweight)
Those are the main ones.

nothing more to say I guess :

Weatherbug

AdBlockPlus (agree, can't function without it... our internet is VERY slow up here because it's all satellite based, and most websites are now constructed assuming a MUCH higher d/l u/l rate, blocking out ads is just about the only way I can use the internet like a normal human being )

Personas

Xmarks (back when I switched between two computers; now that I don't really go back and forth as much I've gotten rid of it)

Me+DH+DS1+DS2+Dog=me and a house full of guys, which is really just peachy, thanks.

There are 3 I cannot live without
Add Block Plus
Element hider (you can choose things on a page you dont want to see and remove them)
Fox replace (allows you to block certain words that you dont want to see)

The others I have are just fun to have like the persona's and color tabs.

AVG Safe Search
Better GReader (enhances Google Reader though I've used it for so long now that I don't remember what it changes)
Boost for Facebook (enhances FB)
Fireshot (lets you take a picture of a webpage and save it as a PDF. Great for things like tutorials and patterns that you don't want to have to copy/paste into Word.)
Fotofox (drag and drop pics from the web to upload to Flikr or something like it)
GoogleTube (adds a YouTube player to Google's search results)
gTranslate
Integrated Gmail (enhances Gmail)
Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar
PDF Download (gives you choices of what to do with PDFs that you download)
Smart Bookmarks Bar (puts icons in place of names on your bookmarks toolbar, a little weird when put together with Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar)

I have Mozilla Firefox, is that the same thing? What are add ons? It is a new browser for me, I used to use IE, but when I had my PC fixed they put the Firefox on.

Yes it is Mozilla Firefox. Add ons are things that you can add to make your browsing better. For instance Add block removes every single add from a web page and in case you miss one you can tell it to make it go away. Element hider removes parts of the web page that you dont like say a message board that has a box with useless information in it that effects the layout of the page you can make it go away

I prefer Firefox because of the layouts check out what this page looks like to me you can see the persona and how wide the message boxes are in blue.

I used to have it like that, but I forgot how. Element hider is part of AdBlock Plus, right?

It works with addblock plus but is a different add on.
