None of them.  :)

Seriously, if it's confusing, don't use .mozconfig - just hand the
arguments to the configure script directly.  Before building, I always
just print out ./configure --help to find out what the options are.

You'll definitely want PSM (Personal Security Manager or something
like that) to visit secure sites.  There's probably a couple others
I'm forgetting - I like to enable SVG and MathML support, and Java,
etc.  Usually don't build in messaging stuff - I don't use 'em.
