As the OP I'll throw in here what extns I've got:
DOM INspector
Gmail Notifier
All-in-One Gestures
User Agent Switcher
Print Image
Crash Recovery
URL Link
Talkback

And the slowness I spoke of is anything but gradual as more things are
added. When the flash 9 plugin is accessible to Firefox and I browse
to a site with ANY flash on the page the thing suddenly becomes like
molasses climbing a hill in January. I've finally removed the flash 9
plugin from Firefox so the browser would be usable.

I first noticed it when using the Firefox 1.5.0.7 that yum brings down
from the Centos repositories. I tried it with an older 1.5.0.4 I had
installed separately and at first I thought it was better, but then
it began crawling too so I finally removed it.

It works fine in Konqueror, though, so I'm not left flashless.
