Add-ons / Optimization
Mine currently are:
British English Dictionary [my native tongue dictionary is to be found at Dictionaries, not Addons, as it should. Dunno why in Firefox and in Pale Moon the en-UK dict. is listed as add-on...]
Flash Video Downloader
Adblock Edge, Lastpass and NoScript are the minimal ones I need to install on every Palemoon (or Firefox, if I am not able to change the browser on that system)
Adblock not only blocks the annoying, moving, flickering ads, it not even loads the ads, which makes loading of webpages even faster!
NoScript blocks most JS and other scripts, also detects cross site scripting, a very nasty way of attacking your system via known websites...
Also, ghostery, for blocking cookies and tracking sites.
Suspend Tab is now what it is, I used to have "Suspend Background Tab" in FFx, but it's no longer maintained by the author, and no longer to be found at FFx addon page.
When you search for "Suspend Tab" for some reason Pale Moon won't list it in results.
When you search it on the Mozilla addons page for FFx, it is listed as the first result.

@Rava, I can enable "Suspend background tabs", but the memory footprint doesn't change a lot..

Update / about Suspend Tab
I sent some tabs manually into suspend, and checked via top the CPU and memory use.
Pale Moon went down from 22.2 % Mem to 18.2%, and now 17.9%.
Might sound not much, but the current running system has 3014 RAM and 1325 MB of swap, so 4% to 5% is still something!

For me the addons I use are:
British English Dictionary
HTTPS Everywhere ( well if it's honest HTTPS on a lot of sites even though it does break some of them; like this one )
Web Developer Toolbar
YSlow"I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."

You need to click the "search by image" button, on the right of the search text area, then you get the new page, in there you can either give an URL to an image, or upload one.

It's a context menu integration for that service. You just right click on an image, select the right command and the add-on opens a new tab with a query for that image in Google Images.
