I don't use that many, but the ones I use are the following:
1. User Agent Switcher (in order to get past those pesky sites requiring IE)
2. Performancing (allows you to add content to your blog right from within Firefox)
3. Chatzilla (IRC client integrated with Firefox, originally part of the Mozilla Suite)

I only use Adblock and CookieCuller. Adblock is great except that it seems to cause problems with movie clips and Flash files.

First, my "must-haves", in order of awesomeness. :)
• Adblock
• FlashBlock
• Tab Mix Plus
• BugMeNot

Then the ones I have installed, but don't even quite remember what they do (I primarily use Safari):
• DOM Inspector
• Nuke Anything
• Jump Link
• DownThemAll!
• FlashGot

I really wish there were something like FlashBlock for Safari. Adblock is more than adequately replaced by PithHelmet or SafariBlock, and the others I don't really miss, but I get tired of constantly turning plugins on and off in Safari. BugMeNot doesn't work on as many sites as I'd like, but it's still cool.

As for themes, I use the default. I actually like the way Firefox looks. It's the way it acts that I hate, and themes can only make that worse. All the ones I've tried were breathtakingly ugly, too...

I noticed you use Forecastfox too. Are you having a problem with accuracy? Sometimes, like right now for instance, it says that it's now raining in this area ... but it's not. In fact, it's pretty nice out. I just recently updated Forecastfox (the developer said there were a couple errors due to his downloading the wrong file). But I noticed the inaccuracy before, and I still notice it now. Weird...

(EDIT: I just checked Forecastfox again and now it accurately stating that it's mostly sunny right now with a possible shower later tonight. Odd. I guess it corrected itself when it refreshed.)

I agree. The current conditions aren't great, but at least they're in the ballpark for me. Forecastfox is still better than going to my TV, changing the channel and waiting for the inevitable commercial to end.

I thought the current conditions were better when Forecastfox used Weather.com than now with Accuweather. Forecastfox seems to match Apple's Weather widget exactly. Is that your experience?

I should probably just shell out a few bucks for a thermometer. The horrors! But then I'll need a wireless device to feed the info to the Mac and the TV. Ohh! New toys! :)

(Oh, you can force a manual update with a right-click.)

Thanks for the right-click tip. I did not know that! :)

I don't know about the widget, since I'm not using Tiger. I'm a die-hard Panther fan, and frankly, widgets annoy the hell out of me.
