I thought that it would be a nice idea to compile a list of privacy and security related add-ons for Firefox 2.0. The list is not complete but I think I have everything covered with those add-ons, feel free to add your top picks in the comments. Let's go.
Please note that while most add-ons have been created for Firefox 2 or previous versions of the browser, they should work just fine in the latest official versions as well.
It is however best to check out the compatibility information on the add-on's pages to make sure it is compatible with your version of Firefox.
Update: We have published an updated privacy guide for Firefox in 2011.
