Everybody knows that the entire staff here at e-Clippings World Headquarters uses Firefox. I run mine off my U3 USB drive. That being said, Lifehacker has a point when they point out that we have all woken up after some all-night extension/add-on bender with a browser that runs somewhat slower than syrup going uphill.
So the first step, if you find yourself in this position, is to go through the diagnostics steps laid out for your in this article. Now, once you have your browser all clean and shiny again, be sure and review this list which lays out the top ten features of Firefox that don't require an extension.
Once you have worked through that list, very carefully start taking sips from this article on the top ten extensions for Firefox.Then be sure to look over all four parts of Lifehacker's great series on "Show Us Your Firefox" for some really interesting ideas on what you can do with this super-flexible browser.
Then, if you are still doubting the worthiness of Firefox, check out this screen cap from a recent visit to Chipotle's site.
