I've found a few very useful add-ons to Firefox that I thought I'd let others know about:

Smart Bookmarks - allows icons only on Bookmarks Toolbar to reduce clutter

ReminderFox - reminder popups for appointments and important dates

Autocopy - text automatically copied on selection and pasted on middle-click

I'm using Firefox 3.0.10 - any others that are simple enough for my small brain to use?

FireFox portable edition can be put on a USB drive. With it you can take all your favourites and history and bookmarks with you. Plus it doesn't leave any information behind on the computer you used it on (assuming there isn't some other program recording what you do and/or enter.)

Handy for internet cafes whilst traveling.

I just discovered another one -

NoSquint allows you to adjust the text-only and full-page (both text and images) zoom levels as well as color settings both globally (for all sites) and per site.

Great for those of us with vision problem - I have cataracts, and I've been trying to get used to my new widescreen monitor.
