    I am looking at all these firefox extensions and still can't decide , which of them are the best. Tell me what you use yourself and recommend some extensions that belong to the group "MUST HAVE'

    There's one called "Download Helper" that lets you download flash videos from YouTube and lots of other sites, so you can save them. Just the thing to save YULittle's videos on racquet stringing.

    Firebug and the Web Developer Extension. Not sure if they're applicable to you but I use them all the time.

    Stumble is great, it helped me discover some really useful sites. And it's just the first day I have been using it. There is also a disadvantage about it, namely it takes a lot of spaces.

    Unless you install 100 plus extensions you wont see any speed decrease.

    Digg: digg.com
    Delicious delicio.us

    For me its:

    Gmail Manager: Manages G-mail accounts, notifies you of new e-mails.

    IE Tab: If a site is incompatible with firefox, instantly switch that tab to internet explorer.
