roboform - fills in forms/stores passwords (paid)

What are your favorite firefox plugins?
Here are a few you don't have:
Synchronize bookmarks was another goodie, but not sure if it got updated yet.
I have a real knack for installing EVERY one I come accross and then screwing FF up beyond all recognition where about 3/4 of 'em work:)
Some of these save a ton of time though doing simple research stuff.
* Bookmark Backup 0.3.1
* ChromEdit 0.1.1.1
* ColorZilla 0.8.3.1
* DOM Inspector 22.214.171.124
* Fangs 0.9.4
* Furl Tools 0.6 [disabled]
* Greasemonkey 0.6.4
* IE View 1.2.7
* InfoLister 0.9c
* Link Toolbar 126.96.36.199
* LinkChecker 0.4.5
* Nightly Tester Tools 1.0.3b
* Performancing 1.2
* QuickNote 0.6.0.2
* Sage 1.3.6
* Screen grab! 0.6
* SearchStatus 1.15
* Talkback 188.8.131.52
* User Agent Switcher 0.6.8
* Web Developer 1.0.2
this list is courtesy of infolister plugin..
sometimes one bogs everything up.. but so far have managed to update most of the relegated ones myself if updates are not automatic.. also might be time for a spring clean as I've either forgotten some of them or maybe it's just that I use them so much I expect them to be there?
Coop, is this one any good?

[edit reason] made link live [/edit]
ScrapBook - very handy at capturing pages and adding notes & or highlights for later reference (captures as a web page so links and everything still work, great for keeping track of SERP's)
Search Engine Ordering - organize engines in the list as well as add ANY sites search to the bar
Html Validator - lets me see with a glance at the status bar if my pages validate
SpellBound - Very handy!
Tab Mix Plus - best tab enhancer IMHO
TargetAlert - no more surprise PDF, email or download links. Also can show which links are labeled rel=nofollow
Web Developer - a billion tools in one!
Mouse Gestures - I didn't think I'd like this at first, now I'm lost in IE, these make everything just a bit faster
ReloadEvery is one I like a lot.
Google PageRank status, of course.
Man, it took Flashblock long enough to show-up in the thread - I couldn't surf the net without it.
dreamcatcher, I seen that one but wasn't quite what I was hoping for. There is one called "Cache View" that used to be freeware but is now shareware. Google that search phrase and you'll find it. I see another extension but it is so new I hesitate to install it:
I guess I'm just not as brave as SuzyUK ;)
Pearl Crescent Page Saver - Really slick. Takes full page screenshots and saves as .png file.
Auto Copy - Must have.
ColorZilla - Really nice to have.
Vertigo - Must have for me. (Reduced width to minimum, which is 50px or so.) At least one of my other extensions make Vertigo scrollable. Love it.
All-in-one-Gestures - Handy; once you learn the gestures that you'll be using. I taped a list on the side of my box, forced myself to be diligent in use, and picked it up fast.
View Source Chart - Don't use it much, but nice to have.
Firesomething- Fun. Deleted defaults and customized.
Yellowpipe Lynx Viewer Tool
The latest version of Web Developer does this also.
Miscellaneous > Display Ruler
The Web Developer version will 'freeze' the page. Refreshing unlocks this. I much prefer MeasureIt, though don't actually use it much.
BTW, Synchronize Bookmarks works on the latest FF version.
Here's my current list:
* Download Statusbar
* Live HTTP Headers
* Web Developer
* Adblock Plus
* Adblock Filterset.G Updater
* History Menu
* Leak Monitor
The sheer breadth of customization you can apply to Firefox has to be one of its best features.
WellRounded - This is a look-and-feel kind of thing.; It adds rounded edges to the location bar, search bar, find bar, and all manor of other toolbars on your browser.
BB Code - Adds BBCode/HTML/XHTML formating to the context menu for forums like www.webmasterworld.com. I can not stress how usefull this is if you post much on forums.
User Agent Switcher - There are many uses for this: 1) When sites won’t let you do something unless you are using IE 2) Impersonate googlebot to see cloaking and get access to sites that require you to be logged in. Impersonating googlebot does not always work but sometimes it does.
Print Image - Adds “Print Image…” when you right click on one.
Roboform - You can only get this extension if you buy Roboform. I love it. It keeps track of all my passwords for me. It can even generate passwords.

Coop me not brave, if it's already broken I can't do it much more harm ;)
fangs for instance still works with a manual adjustment to the version number as do many others
