Scoble wants to know about your favorite Firefox extensions.

Ok, I had to go look.  Here are mine.

  • Adblock – Once installed, it's a snap to filter elements at their source-address.
    Just right-click: Adblock: done. Filters use either the wildcard character (*)
    or full Regular Expression syntax. Hit the status-element and see what has or
    hasn't been blocked.
  • Adblock Filterset.G Updater – This is a companion extension to Adblock and should be used in conjunction with it. This extension automatically downloads the latest version of Filterset.G every 4-7 days. Filterset.G is an excellent set of filters maintained by G for Adblock that blocks most ads on the internet. In addition, this extension allows you to define your own set of filters that you can add along with Filterset.G during an update. To report missed ads or problems with the extension visit the support forums
  • FlashGot – Download one link, selected links or all the links of a page at the maximum speed with a single click, using the most popular external download managers for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and FreeBSD (dozens currently supported products, see for details). FlashGot offers also a Build Gallery functionality which helps to synthetize full media galleries in one page, from serial contents previously scattered on several pages, for easy and fast "download all".
  • Tab Mix Plus – Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox's tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more. It also includes a full-featured session manager with crash recovery that can save and restore combinations of opened tabs and windows.
  • Disable Targets For Downloads –  Prevents sites spawning blank windows when clicking binary downloads.
  • Fasterfox – Performance and network tweaks for Firefox.
  • Highlight Focus – Highlight Focus highlights textfields, selectboxes and textareas when getting focus with an configurable background and/or border color. Due to the fact that FF sometimes need a little bit time to start blinking the cursor this extension supports to keep track the input focus when moving the focus by keyboard.
  • IE Tab – an extension from Taiwan, features: Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla/Firefox.
  • FirefoxView – Open Firefox with the current page or a selected link displayed in Internet Explorer.
  • Options Menu – An extension that provides quick access to the options dialogs of installed extensions. Access is via an 'Extension Options' cascade menu on the Tools menu or by a Toolbar icon.
