I like AdBlock since I don't have a high internet speed I use it to block those flash ads. The other extension are Flashget because I may want to watch flash video off line. How are you guys, which one do you use most often or your favourite. Presume that you use Mozilla Firefox of course.

It would be a tough choice between Gmail Checker, AdBlock Plus, and NoScript

lovinglinux's CheckIt is pretty handy too.

Well, adblock+ is pretty much a no-brainer. I really like firebug and fireftp as well.

A couple that haven't been mentioned...

FEBE (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2109) (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your extensions individually into installable .xpi files. Now you can easily synchronize your office and home browsers.

Pearl Crescent Page Saver (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10367) saves an image of a web page (including Flash content) to a file. Web page screenshots may be captured interactively or from the command line. Options allow you to control the output format (PNG or JPEG), image file name, scaling, and much more.

QuoteURLText (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4292) will copy selected text to the clipboard including Page Title, Location and copy date.

Multi Links (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/13494) lets you open, copy or bookmark multiple links at the same time (by drawing a box) rather than having to do them all individually.

I came to Firefox for the tabbed browsing; I've stayed because of the extensions.

Take a look at my extension QuoteMarks (http://lovinglinux.megabyet.net/?page_id=555) (Mozilla (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/125271)). It can save text as quotes and has integration with Ubuntu forums. It adds a button to the text editor, so you can save a quote when replying and post it later whenever you need.

BTW, the quote above was pasted by QuoteMarks :)

My favorite is NoScript, closely followed by AdBlock Plus.

Things like Adblock+ and the Element hiding helper are default IMHO. So I would have to say...

Compact Menu 2. It lets you hide the menu bar and have the menu as a little toolbar button. Great for saving precious screen real estate.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4550

Then in conjuction with that. 'Toolbar Buttons'. It lets you add some really useful extra buttons to the toolbar. My favourites are the 'Back to top button', great for quick upscrolling on a long forum page and the 'Toggle Menu Bar Button' which allows you to turn the menu bar/addres bar on and off which when used with Compact Menus saves even more screen real estate.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2377

Then thirdly it would be 'Back to Google', which lets you go directly back to your last Google search page no matter how far you have navigated.

I've found this extension useful from time to time. But wish there was something that functioned exactly the same but for the entire OS instead of just the browser. I've searched around for ruler tools and found KRuler, but it's nowhere as good as MeasureIt.
