You forgot the most critical ones, the extensions you need to undo all the
crap that Mozilla have piled onto Firefox since they started on their copy-
everything-Chrome-does spree.  Classic Theme Restorer is the first extension I
load on any new install (even before NoScript), it's now comprehensive enough
that it's probably the only one you need, although Hide Tab Bar With One Tab
is also useful.
