Essential Firefox add-ons

Thought I'd better tidy up my Firefox add-ons as I appear to have accumulated a number that either served a specific purpose and are now redundant (Web Developer) or simply aren't needed (FlagFox).

The list of Add-ons I'm currently using on my Linux workstation are:

  • Blocksite (essential if you want to block Facebook Beacon)
  • Evernote Web Clipper
  • Flashblock (enable Flash objects on a per-site basis)
  • Gmail Manager (to alert when I get new Gmails)
  • TwitterFox (how I generally track Twitter)
  • Wikipedia Lookup Extension (highlight word, right click, search in Wikipedia)
  • Xmarks (Bookmark sync)
I don't use AdBlock because I'm generally not bothered by the adverts on sites I visit regularly, and I'm not enough of a Firefox hacker to want to bother with Greasemonkey. Perhaps something to manage passwords better would be good though.

Am I missing anything essential?
