Blocks annoying video ads on YouTube, Facebook ads, banners and much more.

Customize the way a web page displays or behaves, by using small bits of JavaScript.
Collector's Note Ah, the javascript power of Greasemonkey. This addon does nothing in itself, but gives unlimited power to recreate the web experience in the way you see fit...if you know javascript. Or if you wander over to http://userscripts.org. ;)

LastPass Password Manager by LastPass

LastPass, an award-winning password manager, saves your passwords and gives you secure access from every computer and mobile device.

Xmarks is the #1 bookmarking and open tab add-on. Keep your bookmarks, and open tabs backed up and synchronized across computers and browsers. Mobile phones with Premium access. Utilize LastPass to sync passwords!
Collector's Note Ok, this is a must-have addon as well. It stores all of my bookmarks both online & offline. If you ever use more than one computer, how do you retrieve your bookmarks? If you have this addon, there is no need to worry. It syncs your bookmarks to their server so they can be retrieved anywhere. Even if the addon is not installed one one computer, you can simply go to their site and find your treasured bookmarks there. It works with passwords too, but you can't beat LastPass for that.

Console² by Philip Chee, zeniko

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 45 reviews

15,909 users

Console² (pronounced Console Squared or Console Two) replaces the JavaScript Console with what could be the next generation Error Console. From v0.5 includes the Console Filter extension previously available separately from the Console² website.
Collector's Note Why I am here? The geek in me needs this extension. Sometimes I help in testing out betas of addons and this gives me add'l error data. Kind of the behind the scenes view of how Firefox operates. Useful for developers and testers, not as much for others.

Long URL Please by darraghcurran

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 69 reviews

12,874 users

Replaces short urls with the originals so you can see where links actually link to.
Collector's Note Those cryptic short url's have their purpose (http://bit.ly/apoisdjfpo, etc), but I don't like not-knowing where a link will take me. This addon does the work for me by converting the cryptic link into the actual link.
