Session Manager saves and restores the state of all or some windows - either when you want it or automatically at startup and after crashes. It can also automatically save the state of open windows individually.
Collector's Note Much more advanced session manager than Firefox's. Especially helpful if you want to save groups of tabs and return to them later.

IE Tab by PCMan, yuoo2k

IE Tab - an extension from Taiwan, features: Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla/Firefox...
Collector's Note Firefox is definitely the most flexible browser, but sometimes, a website requires IE. This addon lets you open those pages within an IE tab right in Firefox. Works great.

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your extensions individually into installable .xpi files.
Collector's Note What happens if your hard drive crashes or Firefox goes crazy on you? Without this backup and restore utility, you will be trying to remember all the settings you made and reinstalling everything from scratch.
