I've installed AdBlock Plus and FlashBlock so far. Aljhough NotScripts sounds very desirable, it sounds a little complicated to set up and I can't find clear directions so far as how and where one would migrate to to diddle with passwords etc. Could use a few pointers here, I guess. I feel absolutely naked on the net running Firefox without NoScript, so I really do want to figure out what is needed to install and understand this other extension.
Pleasse elaborate on what WOT is and why you think it's important. I'm sure it is, I just don't yet get it- how does it work, why is it desirable, what sort of malware is it protecting against, etc.

NotScripts works well and similar albeit different icon. I would just install it and try it out. There's nothing with passwords to worry about. It is pretty well graphically simple enough to understand as you go around to different sites just click on the brown pyramid and determine from what you see, what you want to allow or disallow, always or temp/temporarily.
WOT is just a way to determine if a site is safe, or your search results are safe. The results are Green/Safe, Yellow to Orange use caution in varying degrees, Red/Danger and Purple ? mark for we haven't looked at that site yet. You will also want to look at the rating itself by hovering over the colored circle as sometimes it's just a matter of being unsafe for kids. But it gives a general feel. Some sites, may be too strictly rated as well. But you can determine that for yourself by knowing given sites to be OK.
To me, I use it for sites I am not familiar with. To give me a rule of thumb to start from. Nothing is perfect, but it is a good starting point. If it's green, you can pretty well guarantee it's safe site.
