Well, I do have a few. But they are mainly to remove any un-necessary scripts that may install unsavorary trojans on my PC. OR those that run noisy video or music in their sites. Otherwise, I try to keep my firefox as trim and slim as possible. Yes, having too many of them will slow the browser down quite a bit. Unless you are going to serve like twenty to thirty tabs as any one time, you will not really be able to feel the difference. If you do not believe, try disabiling most of them except for the Noscript and see if there is a difference.

The one that stops noisy video or music from loading is 'NoScripts'. This plug-in is a god sent! Some scripts still do get thru, but constant updates will minimise this problem. Like I said, unless you open like twenty to thirty tabs in the three to four browsers at one go, you will not be able to feel the lag that much with all the additional plug-in you mentioned you installed in your firefox.
