Mainly for my own records, but I'd be interested to see what other Firefox users consider to be their must-have extensions.

Adblock Plus
Ad killer - must-have.
All-in-One Sidebar
Opera-style sidebar control for access to sidebar panels.

Excellent set of Web debugging utilities, integrating a javascript console, markup validation, document inspection and others.
Fission
Safari-style progress bar in address bar.
Greasemonkey
Manager and environment for client-side scripts. Usefl for fixing web annoyances or shoehorning extra functionality into third-party websites.

For noting down things from work for home and vice versa, I tend to use del.icio.us; scrapbook is more useful for fragments of documents. I think my prejudices against Google Notebook are that it's a centralised service that leaves me to rely on a third party for storing my data. I'd happily use a Notebook-a-like that allowed me to sync my clients with a service on a machine that I administered.
