If I had to pick one extension that I can't browse the Internet without it is Firefox's NoScript extension. You have probably heard about it or are using it as well to block all scripts on all websites that you connect to automatically. This is huge from a security point of view as it blocks many attack vectors that other Internet users are exposed to.
Some users may not like NoScript because of this, as it may render websites partially or fully unusable by default. It is then up to you to change the necessary permissions so that you can browse the site normally. While that is certainly a drawback, it is clearly less important than being safe on the Internet.
I have been using NoScript for a long time and most websites work out of the box when the extension is enabled in the browser. You can get most sites to work by allowing scripts to run on the domain the website is hosted on. Only rarely is it required to enable other scripts for sites to work in the browser.
I'd like to share 6 NoScript features with you that are not known by many of the extension's users.
