for me it makes no difference

it's like do I want an engine or transmission in my car more? I can't drive without either...

and I won't use firefox without both plugins AND extensions... so just saying add-ons is synonymous

plus firefox/mozilla DOES include them all under the "ADD-ONS" menu... theme/plugins/extensions/services... so calling any of them addons would be fitting

Add-ons add extra features or functionality to the browser, whereas, plugins are mainly for the third-party programs like flash, silverlight, etc.
even by your terms, the plugins do add extra functionality... flash adds flash features to firefox
