I'm using Firefox Dev Edition and I'm using these plugins:

Cookie Auto Delete
great for clearing all the cookies that website makes once you close the tab.

CSS Reload
for fast way to reload CSS when you don't want to lose all your JS changes and want to see the CSS changes you've made.

Facebook Container
Facebook Container isolates your Facebook activity from the rest of your web activity in order to prevent Facebook from tracking you outside of the Facebook website via third party cookies.

Fake Filler
for fast filling up forms when you are testing them.

Gitako - GitHub file tree
for browsing the github filetree

Google search link fix
prevents Google and Yandex search pages from modifying search result links when you click them. This is useful when copying links but it also helps privacy by preventing the search engines from recording your clicks.

Fast JSON viewer - highlights, shows items count/size, handles large files

Open Graph Preview
Shows approximately what users will see if this webpage is shared on websites that uses OG tags to display a preview like Facebook, Twitter ...

Panorama Tab Groups
THE BEST tab organization addon. You can scope tabs in multiple groups and have them when needed.

SearchPreview enhances your search results pages by inserting site preview images (thumbnails) and popularity ranks into Google™, DuckDuckGo™, Yahoo™ and Bing™ search results.

Temporary Containers
This one is great for those websites that limit you the number of daily/monthly reads like medium.

Twitter Container
unofficial fork of Mozilla's Facebook Container designed for Twitter. Twitter Container isolates your Twitter activity from the rest of your web activity in order to prevent Twitter from tracking you outside of the Twitter website via third party cookies. This is not an official Mozilla Product & is in no way related to them.

uBlock Origin
hands down the best adblocking addon. It's not slowing down page loads and gives you the ability to pick elements manually that are going to be blocked.

Vue.js devtools
Debugging the VueJS apps

Inspecting the technology used on particular website

Wayback Machine
Great for links that have expired if you still want to see that information. It automatically detects 404 links and gives you the last version that was online.

YouTube Container
Same as Twitter and Facebook containers. Stops the YT from profiling you and having all those cookie tracking on other websites.
