The first and only download manager/accelerator built inside Firefox!
Collector's Note A download manager that can accelarate the downloads of those really big files. It also comes to the rescue when you need to pause and resume downloads.
A customizable mouse gestures extension which enables to execute various commands and user scripts with six types of gestures.
Collector's Note Mouse gestures. Simply put, a way of issuing command to the browser without having to move the cursor to a button to click on. flick the cursor one way - you close a tab. flick it another, you open a tab, and so on.... very handy for quick browsing.
Allows the download manager to also open in a tab or sidebar, and adds some optional display changes.
Collector's Note Tip: Configure this to open in a tab and you have behaviour similar to Chrome.
Bypass compulsory web registration with the context menu via www.bugmenot.com.
Collector's Note This is your way around those pesky websites that demand you login just so you can see a webpage. just tell them to bug you not. In other words, this add-on looks for a username and password that works and logs you in.

Keep your personal info private on the web with new & powerful privacy tool, MaskMe.
Collector's Note I value my privacy. A lot. There are enough people out there for the advertising companies to make money off without me being part of them. This extension helps keep targeted advertising away from me and that's the way I like it.
Note from Mozilla: This add-on has been discontinued. Try Add-on Update Checker instead.
Notifies you when updates are available for your extensions and themes.
Collector's Note Great for mum or you. Install add-ons and then this. Configure it to stay hidden, download updates automatically and not restart automatically. A nice way to keep that "Install updates" dialog from appearing on startup while getting all the updates you need.
Extends the Mozilla Add-on Collector allowing to install multiple add-ons with a single click. NOTE: This addon is no longer in development. It is still here for the convenience of existing users. Do not download unless you know what you are doing!!!
Collector's Note The perfect complement to the Add-on Collector. It allows you to install or remove all add-ons from a collection with a single click.
Shows you a relevant Wikipedia article along with your search results. Clicking links in the article will trigger new Google searches, making it a very useful research tool...
Collector's Note Indispensable. I'm forever googling things I'd like to understand. This addon splits the Google search results page into two columns - one has the search results and the other has a wikipedia entry on what I'm googling (if it exists). I love it.
Collector's Note You only use the stop button when a page is loading. You mostly use the reload button after a page has loaded. This extension combines the two buttons into one, so you have more space for the address bar. Will you miss the fact that you can't reload while a page is loading? I've been using this extension for over six months and I usually have about 10 tabs open at any time. I haven't missed it.
