Tiny JavaScript Debugger

You can already do this with the built in developer tools Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems like you don't realize it, but you can already debug Firefox using the built-in developer tools:
1. Open the built-in devtools.
2. Click the settings icon and check "Enable chrome and add-on debugging" and "Enable remote debugging."
3. Restart Firefox.

You will now have new options in the Web Developer Tools menu:
- Browser Toolbox: Used to inspect and debug the browser
- Browser Console: console.log, console.dir etc. log to this

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5). 

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Finally, a great feed reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Google Reader is dead, long live Feedly!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (14.0.482). 

BugzillaJS - Tweaks for Bugzilla

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is by far the best Bugzilla addon available anywhere.

I really can't think what you could do to make it better. If was really going to stretch to something then I would say that a dashboard of watched bugs along with patch / review status would be very useful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.3). 

gTranslator

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension but it does not work with framesets

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3).
