Does having add-ons slow a PC down?

Technically. Sometimes, it actually warns you that it will cause problems, like with firefox, the manager tells you if an add-on is "known to cause issues." All I know is that if your browser is slowing down, check your add-ons and disable anything that seems useless for your browser. For an example, if you never use google maps/earth much, just disable the google earth add-on. Or if you installed skype you can disable the skype add-on.
