    I use Firebug to edit a site's CSS in real-time whenever I'm having trouble with a skin.

    ColorZilla is what I use to grab colors to play around with when I'm making skins.

    I have FoxyProxy installed but I'm not sure what it's for, don't use it and don't remember adding it.

    I have Animated Matrix for my Appearance. It was distracting at first but I forced myself to like it.

    I had GreaseMonkey but I uninstalled it because I couldn't figure out how to uninstall this.

    Only Firebug, and one addon that lets me spoof user agents. I only use Firefox for debugging purposes. In Chrome I only use Adblock Plus.

    AutoCopy - every text that you highlight with your mouse automatically gets stored to your clipboard.
    ColorfulTabs - My tabs have pretty colors.
    DisableBackSpaceNavigation - Backspace doesn't force me to go to the previous page, which has been very useful.
    Form History control - Be able to clean up pretty much everything that gets automatically stored by FireFox, such as words you searched for.
    Lazarus Form History - Be able to retrieve stuff you typed in earlier, and makes you able to automatically retrieve things you had stored on the clipboard before.
    NewTabUrl - When I have a url link copy pasted and open a new tab, it automatically opens that link. Also makes it possible to automatically go to a specific url when you open a new tab.
    SessionManager - Possibly my most loved addon. Makes you able to save and restore browser sessions / windows. Which means that when I open FireFox, automatically all my tabs open again, even if FF crashed for example.

    • FireFTP
    Quick and easy basic FTP. FileZilla is installed anyway for when FFTP messes up with big db zips, yes it does! :D

    • Firebug
    For taking things apart, investigative works and such.
