I'll add in the links later but here are some decent ones.

StumbleUpon
FlashGot
VideoDownloader
Gmail Notifier
TabSwitcher
TabMixPlus

Bookmarklets for easier porn browsing (drag these links to your bookmarks bar in firefox)

EDIT: Can't paste javascript for security reasons, I'll try to find the site that lists them all.

EDIT 2: I see you already put videodownloader and flashgot.

I use two firefox extentions:

Colorzilla - a colour dropper, selects any colour on the page or an image and displays its value in RGB and Hex

Web Developer - a toolbar with masses of functionality, including css/html editing (of the site you're viewing), css/html validation, image viewing (+locations), element outlining (useful for fixing tables/divs) and quick options (eg disable JS)

I also make good use of the bookmarks toolbar, having an icon at the top of my screen for all the sites I visit regularly.

Not to mention you can download Firefox 2.0 already from Mozilla FTP...

And not a single fuck was given that day.

So yeah, it was supposed to be released tomorrow.

But...psst....

Never put shit on your FTP servers early

ftp://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.or...2.0/win32/en-US

Notice sexified buttons and inline spell-checker for internet forms.

The good news is that 6 out of my 9 installed extensions work, the ones that don't are:

gtafcode (Post as IMG, post as URL, etc...for IPB-based forums)
SearchPluginHacks (Nothing much, don't worry about it, it doesn't concern you)
Fasterfox (Eh...didn't help me THAT much)

Anyway it's sexy and I really think you should get it!

Good, I've been looking forward to the final release of 2.0, I didn't bother with any of the beta's or RC's. I hope all my extensions work.

P.S. The link chris82 posted is for the US locale. If you live in a different country you'll likely want your localised version for the built in search engines and dictionaries etc.

Click your language here and get the setup file: ftp://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.or...ases/2.0/win32/

And BTW when you posted that it was still 23rd in USA, it was the 24th already here and throughout the rest of the world actually, yeah only North and South America were still in yesterday, so it may not have been an accidental early release. Having said that, Check for Updates in my 1.5 still isn't finding anything...

I just installed 2.0 right over my 1.5 install.

BTW sorry, but you guys are lucky having a day before us...except when it comes to GTA being released.

And the Mozilla page still isn't showing 2.0 as the release...

EDIT: Firefox addons/Firefox 2.0 threads merged and pinned.
