Firefox Extensions, Share Yours

Along the lines of the similarly popular "Utilities, Share Yours" thread.

What Firefox extensions do you use? (This thread is also appropriate for themes and other Firefawks-related stuff.)

Be kind, link to them via this site:

If they're not on addons.mozilla for some weird reason, link to a site where you can download it.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox

NoScript
Every person who uses Firefox should use this. It prevents any scripts or Flash from auto-executing unless you explicitly allow it.

Adblock Plus
Blocks Ads and better than Adblock IMO. You used to need Filterset.G to go with this, but not really anymore as Adblock Plus has filters built in.

ForecastBar Enhanced
Enhanced version of ForecastFox. Highly customizable. I love being able to look at animated radar because I can estimate roughly how much time I have before a storm hits. Great for general use but supreme fun for weather geeks.

ColorZilla
ColorZilla basically lets you figure out what a color is on a page. Click the lil' ColorZilla icon and then hover over a color, and it gives you a RHB and hex value for it. Great for web developers, artists, etc.

MeasureIt
Click the icon and drag a box that tells you the size of stuff in pixels. I mostly use it for making websites, .html files, etc.

ChatZilla
IRC in Firefox. Sadly this runs in a seperate windows instead of as a tab. If someone knows of an extension where I can run IRC in a tab within Firefox, I'd love to hear about it!

Tab Mix Plus
"Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox's tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more. It also includes a full-featured session manager."

Smart Bookmarks Bar

"Not enough place on your bookmarks bar ?...
Smart Bookmarks Bar extension comes right here by hiding bookmarks names and only showing icons.
Bookmark names will be displayed on mouse over."

Session Manag
er
"Session Manager saves and restores the state of all windows - either when you want it or automatically at startup and after crashes. Additionally it offers you to reopen (accidentally) closed windows and tabs."

DownThemAll!

"The first and only download manager/accelerator built inside Firefox!"

OpenDownload
"Allows you to open any file from the internet into the OS assigned program. This is similar to IE's 'Open' or 'Run' file download functionality. ..."

Split Browser
"This splits the content area of the browser window as you like."

Flashgot
"Download all the links, movies and audio clips of a page at the maximum speed with a single click, using the most popular, lightweight and reliable external download managers."

Greasemonkey
"Allows you to customize the way a webpage displays using small bits of JavaScript. ..."

Greasefire
"Automatically find Greasemonkey scripts on Userscripts.org (requires Greasemonkey)"

Stylish
"Customize the look of the application and of websites with Stylish, a user styles manager."

Show Go!
"Always show the go button in the location bar...not just when you type in the location bar" (Yeah, you can get it back other ways but why not do it the lazy way.)

IE Tab
"IE Tab - an extension from Taiwan, features: Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla/Firefox... "


Stuff I have installed out of curiosity but not experimented much with:

Ghostery
Adblock Plus Filter Uploader
Adblock Plus: Element Hiding Helper
Mr Uptime
New Tab Button Position (Mix Tab Plus fooks it up, I think)
SmoothWheel
Undo Closed Tabs Button (Mix Tab Plus fooks it up, I think)
Nuke Anything Enhanced
Bookmark Duplicate Detector


[For Thunderbid]
MinimizeToTray - (work(s)ed with FF) Out dated but still works with TB for me.

Contacts Sidebar
"Displays the address books in a sidebar in Thunderbirds 3-pane-window and can be toggled with the F4 key or a toolbar button." Like OE



*Installs MeasureIt*

Linkification
Converts text links into genuine, clickable links...
((Seriously an amazing and simple piece of work))

ReloadEvery
Reloads web pages every so many seconds or minutes. The function is accessible via the context menu (menu you get when you right click on a web page) or via a drop down menu on the reload button ...

Web Developer toolbar
The Web Developer extension adds a menu and a toolbar to the browser with various web developer tools. It is designed for Firefox, Flock and Seamonkey, and will run on any platform that these browsers support including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It's aweseome if you're in to stuff like that.

I've been using Vimperator (http://vimperator.org/trac/wiki/Vimperator) lately. It's a plugin for Firefox that strips it down to only a tab bar and adds a command bar at the bottom. It allows for mouse-free browsing in the style of the VIM text editor. My mouse died four days ago and I won't have a replacement for a while (up to a month if Logitech decides to be an asshole) so it comes in handy. There's a tough segment of learning how to use it at the beginning, but once you become fluent with it (Luckily, I had experience using VIM when I messed around with Python) you can easily browse the internet quicker with your keyboard than your mouse.

Resizeable Textarea 0.1d
"resize small textareas" (doesn't work here, so usless to me )


Can't tell which is better:
SmoothWheel
"Scrolls the document smoothly when scrolling the mouse wheel (or using keyboard arrows)."

Yet Another Smooth Scrolling
"Replaces scroll behavior with both mouse wheel and cursor key into fully customizable natural smooth one."
