Should I have firefox add-ons that do similar jobs

Should I install adblock+, noscript and ghostery at the same time or skip one or two of them as they seem to do the same thing?

I usually install all three of those (plus some more). Never had any problems from it.

i'm using noscript and requestpolicy.
they work together well.
for adblocking i'm using hosts-based blocking, system-wide, not browser-based.
it's been a good combination for me, for years.
