When you install 1.0PR, your extensions will all be automatically 
disabled. Then the first time you start it up, it will offer to check 
for updates of your extensions (although you may have to go searching 
for any not listed on the official Mozilla Update site). All of my 
extensions have now been updated to be compatible with 1.0PR; I can't 
promise all the extensions you use will also be updated, but I'd say 
there's a pretty good chance they have.

I definitely found the upgrade to 1.0PR to be the least painful upgrade 
so far. (The only thing you have to do first is move/rename/delete the 
Firefox folder in your Program Files.
