That looks interesting. I'll give it a try.

Did you ever look at JDownloader? It does all that and even bypasses the Captcha for most sites that use them. It also can integrate with Firefox via the Flashgot Extension or its own extension (which is not compatible with 3.6.2)

»jdownloader.org/home

It has a bit of a a learning curve, but is very powerful.

New Tabs at the End -- makes FF put the tab at the end like it used to be!

bbcode -- for adding bbcode tags around the text you copied. Quote should be one click though :/

Colorzilla -- tells you the color code for an item on the page.

Password Exporter -- just handy.

Hide Google Options:

»www.seotools.com/hide-google-options/

Gets rid of the new Options Panel on left hand side. At the moment only works with Google.com

Icon in notifications tray allows to toggle between having the Options Panel or not.

Developer is working on a fix to enable extension to work with localised versions of Google.

Re: [FireFox] Essential Firefox Addons 2010

Google Alarm shows notifications, plays sound effects and keeps running stats about the % of websites you've visit with Google bugs present. Stay alert install Google Alarm today.

Yes, it is very annoying. They do have a silent version, but it is still annoying. It appears only to alert when it detects Google AdSense, Analytics and Google web sites. I really doubt that it checks for "personal" information at all.

I suppose if I really hated Google and wanted to avoid all sites that "use" Google servers to collect my "personal" stuff it might be useful. Then again I may as well just pull the plug.

A little surprised there's not more using the Personal Menu extension.

The Personal Menu extension provides the features of Compact Menu, Tiny Menu, and the Bookmarks Menu Button.

Prior to Personal Menu, was using Compact Menu and Bookmarks Menu Button.

I tried "you tube to mp3". Found it useless. for the life of me couldn't find the button.

The "Bookmarks Menu Button", still trying to figure out what's the difference to the normal "Bookmarks".

When you want to minimize items on the Menu bar to add other toolbar items to the Menu bar, or minimizing items to using a single toolbar, with the Personal Menu or Bookmarks Menu Button extensions, The Bookmarks toolbar icon, and History toolbar icon combines/provides the features of both the "Bookmarks" Menu item and Bookmarks toolbar icon to the Bookmarks toolbar icon. Likewise for the History toolbar icon.
