These are 40 extensions "ish" I use at school on a daily basis that aid in effective teaching. A classroom, students, and schools will benefit from using these.
The easy way to download and convert Web videos from hundreds of YouTube-like sites.
This works also for audio and picture galleries.
Collector's Note I download everything I use in class because you never know when the internet is going to go lag or disconnect due to network difficulties.
The first and only download manager/accelerator built inside Firefox!
Collector's Note If you need a more advanced download manager than Firefox provides natively and you do not want to install extra desktop software, this is the one for you!
Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won't get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on...
Collector's Note Control what plays and what does not play-Unfiltered web can be unpredictable and sometimes disastrous for the teacher. This allows a measure of control over that unpredictability.
LastPass, an award-winning password manager, saves your passwords and gives you secure access from every computer and mobile device.
Collector's Note Lifesaver! Enough said!

Collector's Note Intersting sometimes to know where the site is that you are visiting.
Use this extension to save things you see on the web into your Evernote account. It provides a toolbar button and context menu to add an article, selection, URL or an entire page.
Collector's Note Very handy and well known. There is a free version and a paid version, but the free version allows for heavy normal use-I've never had want yet of the paid version.
Direct access to your most visited websites
Collector's Note Useful and flexible tool to visually get where you want to go quick.
When you find something on the web that you want to view later, put it in Pocket. It automatically syncs to your phone, tablet or computer so you can view it at any time, even without an internet connection.

Dark theme for Firefox. Inspired by the night launch of STS-116.
Collector's Note Sharp contrast for ultimate visual experience and easy concentration on what's important.

Collector's Note Another quick sharing tool or in my case, backup tool!
Visual bookmarks for Firefox. (Works with all latest versions of Firefox)
Collector's Note Similar to the "Speed Dial" add-on. Worth trying to decide which you like better, but I would not use them both.
AutoPager automatically loads next pages when you reach the end of a page. It works on a ton of sites,Google,Yahoo..
It works well with most other add-ons adblock plus, WOT and most of the greasemonkey scripts.
You can also try AutoPagerLite.
