So after a couple of years of procrastination I have finally decided to give Firefox a tryout. I have installed it and so far so good. I have installed the following add-ons; foxytunes, download status, redshift V2 skin, Adblock plus, LinkedIn companion, and cooliris.
What other add-ons should I get?

The best add-on for me is Google browser sync. Google Browser Sync for Firefox is an extension that continuously synchronizes your browser settings – including bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords – across your computers. It also allows you to restore open tabs and windows across different machines and browser sessions.
Ad Block Plus
Fasterfox - Performance and network tweaks for Firefox.
Yahoo Mail Notifier - Advises you when you have new mail in your Yahoo mailbox.

I also like all-in-one gestures, you can click "back" by right clicking and moving the mouse left, and up opens a new page, right click and right goes forward. It's very handy when I'm using my laptop.

I like the map+ add on...Allows a quick right click to see a the map of an address without leaving the page.

DTA is a good download manager.
Gpace turns your gmail account into online storage with transfers similar to FTP.
Imageshack makes a nice add-on bar for easy image uploads.

Tab Mix Plus - Is handy because it can define custom tab behavour, for instance, a new tab can be set to open blank page, home page, current page, duplicate page, or any given address.
Viamatic foXpose - Will array display all your tabs at once to find the one you are looking for
FxIF - A EXIF viewer (if you are a photo geek) Lets you right click on a photo, and if there is any EXIF data attached it will show it to you.

If you are using AdBlock, you absolutely have to also use filterset.G updater as well.
