Nice list, and I've used some of them as well. Back in the Firefox 1.X days, I had an "everything including the kitchen sink" profile that loaded 115 extensions. FF took 45 seconds to load and initialize. That was mostly to see if I could. My production profile had about 40.

I've been trying to cut down, and these days I run about 14. I'm also using FF3 RC1, so part of that is simply what will work under FF3.

Must haves here include All-In-One-Sidebar, Cutemenus, Firebug, GMail Notifier, Greasemonley, Image Zoom, MR Tech Toolkit, NoScript, Sage-Too, and Tab Mix Plus.

How about an updated list? Any changes since you posted this one?
