I’m using it right now, and I find it very useful! Thanks for sharing the 10 plug-ins. I’m going to try Piknik!

Four extensions that I would happily pay for include Web Developer Toolbar (as you mentioned), Firebug, FireFTP, and IETab.

I’m definitely going to have to check out a few of these from the post and comments that I haven’t heard of before!

I am not educated enough to make any real choice, I guess you can tell by my answers at the top of this reply LOL.
Peace!

Never used FireFTP as I’m quite happy with FileZilla, although I’m sure it is quite useful.

I have StumbleUpon toolbar but I always forget to use it. I don’t like having my browser too full of add-ons

Jason
Yeah I think Firefox can become a little bloated, that why I try prune my extension now and again. I suppose that was the whole idea of the post to ask people which extensions do you think are that good, you’d pay money for them.

I’m with Danielle on Search Status. I’ve become addicted to knowing everyone’s rankings.

And the second is my StumbleUpon toolbar. StumbleUpon has the potential to send a lot of traffic, and then when I read something I like, I can Stumble it. And of course, coComment (thanks to you) and this one is indispensable for all my blog commenting.

It’s a pity there isn’t something like that already in IE. Isn’t Firefox getting a bit bloaty these days? (Ok, not as bloaty as IE!).

As for paying for add-ins – I thought the point of Firefox and the Mozilla project was to offer free alternatives – if so it would kind of be against the spirit of the project to ask for payment of add-ins.

Firefox is my browser of choice. I do love Opera, but I spend a fair amount of time using Google Reader, and Opera just doesn’t format it well (especially embedded video clips which seem to mess the page up).

Two extensions I use the most are the rendering switch to automatically show whatever page you’re on in Internet Explorer (must get the web developer one), and the Search Status extension (showing those pink nofollow links and letting me keep up to speed on competitor Page Ranks.

I know how you use CoComment to subscribe to conversations. Personally I stick with the ‘subscribe to comments’, but of course not everyone has this installed.

Thanks for showing a few I wasn’t aware of.
