Now that Netscape is dead man walking, thought I/We could show everyone the benefits of having the Firefox browser over any other.
Here's my favorite extensions:

Better Gmail (enhances Gmail)
Download Helper (Rips Video from Embedded files)
DownloadThemAll! (Rips media files from websites)
PDF Download
Download Statusbar (Better options than Firefox's download mgr.)
Foxmarks Bookmark Syncronizer
Greasemonkey (Lots of scripts available)
Get directions from Google Maps (Select text and click and it launches GoogleMaps
Map+
Febe Backup

Anyone else like the Firefox?

Most of these can be found over at

Unplug is my favorite for pulling videos and other embedded stuff.

Is there an extension that does a better Find?

Ctrl-F

with a drop down list or auto-complete?

I am getting annoyed typing the same things over and over again.

All of those rock.

I also use
Forecast Fox
ImageZoom
AllInOneGestures (mouse gestures).

And the wife uses
Reminderfox all the time to keep track of bills and shit.

And SOS, I just ran across this so I don't know if it's what you are looking for. I'm going to give it a shot though to see how it works.

Okay, you have all piqued my interest... what do all these extensions do?

I listed one (Adblock Plus) and it's fairly obvious what it does.... but now I'm wondering what I'm missing.

Stumble Upon - bounces you all over the web to sites that are tagged by other users, and fall into catagories of interest that you select.

Unplug - download the direct file of any media on a web page

Minimize to tray - ctl+shift+M and firefox minimizes to your open apps area of the tool bar.

Foxytunes - control your media player (supports a ton of them) right in your browswer.

FEBE - backs up EVERYTHING you've got on your browser.

I'd list the others I mentioned, but if you're not into web design chances are you'll have absolutely no use for them.

Stumbleupon fucking rules.
Based on what people in this thread have written about it, I downloaded it on Firefox, and I don't like it. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

The shit I've found from "Stumbling" is so interesting.

IE has finally pissed me off enough that I now am using Firefox. I've DLed no add ons for it yet, but I did DL flash player so I can do the youtube on it. I also DLed the Google tool bar, since I am a Google guy through and through. The one thing that pisses me off about it, is that I am so used to hitting ALT+S to post a reply here, and that doesn't work like that on FF. I actually have to click on the button. :(

I just downloaded a bunch of them.

Firescribe is pretty damn cool if you're a blogger type. Yes, I am that douche.

Also, interclue is the coolest fucking thing...never be meatspun or rickrolled again. It opens a small preview window when you hover over a link.

Anybody got any other favorites, now that FF3 is out?

Foxmarks bookmark Synchronizer. It allows me to keep my bookmarks at work, at home, and my laptop. Very easy.

No Script and AdBlock Plus are a must!
