Pocket

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

worked with it just a bit, since the handling of multiple articles and pages is some how not that comfortable and a bit clumsy and ungainly,
a nice (although not intended to..) is using "Tab Mix Plus" 's session holder, to hold batches of pages with a little or almost no latency, it holds a batches of pages (/by window or all of the windows opened) yet I find it more useful for massive browsing for IT articles or MSDN content (for example).

Multiple Tab Handler

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

this one has a nice idea, it is still a 'half baked pie'.
a better alternative is the "Tab Mix Plus" add-on which is far more superior.

Nightly Tester Tools

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It is a great addon, but it does not directly support 3.7a6pre (minefield).

I just copy the prefs.js from the firefox profile folder,
along with some other stuff like bookmarks backup, and uninstall (with profile) and double check using some reg-fixer that all firefox residents are gone, then I've installed the new 3.7a6pre (blank) and manually set everything up. it seems that it is better that way since this version tweak a little db files that holds some definitions, and reinstall over older versions of firefox just won't do. also I've manually changed all of the max version in the install.rdf file of all my add-on (I've copied the "extensions" folder from the profile folder to my desktop, this folder holds uncompressed version of all the addons, changed to 3.7a6pre, and compress the folder to a zip, and renaming it to xpi.
this way I've got "semi-compatible" addon, (even for Nightly Tester Tools).

also you can manually change (add) to prefs.js a line like this:
user_pref("extensions.enabledItems", "autopager@mozilla.org:0.6.1.14,checkplaces@andyhalford.com:2.2.1,linkalert.conlan@addons.mozilla.com:1.0.1,orbit_ffext@orbitdownloader:2.0.2,SaveImages@mozillafirefox.com:0.6.3,snaplinks@snaplinks.mozdev.org:1.0.8,statusable.wayne@ptaff.ca:0.9.6,{0538E3E3-7E9B-4d49-8831-A227C80A7AD3}:0.9.10.2,{1018e4d6-728f-4b20-ad56-37578a4de76b}:4.0.6,{35106bca-6c78-48c7-ac28-56df30b51d2c}:0.6.4,{49bce64d-e8a0-4f97-b784-68d55a785d6f}:7.0.20100111Wb1,{8620c15f-30dc-4dba-a131-7c5d20cf4a29}:2.0.3,{a089fffd-e0cb-431b-8d3a-ebb8afb26dcf}:0.82,{b9db16a4-6edc-47ec-a1f4-b86292ed211d}:4.8.1,{c45c406e-ab73-11d8-be73-000a95be3b12}:1.1.8,{d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d}:1.3a.20100612,{D4DD63FA-01E4-46a7-B6B1-EDAB7D6AD389}:0.9.6.8,{dc572301-7619-498c-a57d-39143191b318}:0.3.8.4pre.100613a,{e4a8a97b-f2ed-450b-b12d-ee082ba24781}:0.8.20100408.6,{EDA7B1D7-F793-4e03-B074-E6F303317FB0}:1.2.6,{eeeeeeee-aaaa-0000-aaaa-000000000000}:3.1.2,{972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}:3.6.3");
esentially thats what this addon done,
change to your addon and you might could re-use existing profile over 3.7a6pre from and old one, make sure to use you own content in the line above.

CheckPlaces

Great Work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think this add-on is brilliant. I'm using it often to keep my bookmarks fresh, it benefits browsing in so many ways- besides the main thing I've installed it at first (the getting of the favicons)- Together with my addon "Fasterfox (EladKarako Mod)" it opens many connections at same time, pipelining the connections, caching the DNS for faster browsing and the interface is efficient and fast. The new database optimization is a good idea, although I think that a specific "vacuum" call to the .sqlite files in the user-profile folder will work even better.
I'm happy to contribute to this project because I think it is very useful and would like to see it updating (every now and then) with new, fun abilities.

Fasterfox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

try https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14833 instead.
it works faster.

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

recommended preferences to speed things up:
users should uncheck the services: MP3tunes and Tweeter.
download mode-> normal, and while you are there also set the download location to your desktop.

capture->youtube,
in the list below add more video formats such as [HQ37] and you can also add 3gp source to download (for cellular phones),
also remove the check from Preserve YouTube file names (CJK),
this will fix some problems and help you to avoid that extra menu in the right click in Firefox's context menu

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

the recent (available from the website) is really good, much faster, less resources needed, you can also use the new Google Closure Compiler to lessen the size of the xpi package, I really recommending, the google tool is great (also free to use)!

FireFTP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very Nice, but could be nicer if I could use the Putty official/another distribution instead of the once modified by you, since there are another builds (nightly or custom builds for Multi-Core CPUs) that handles better on multi-core cpus or better resources handling...
oh'.. never mind.. :_]

Multi Links

Wonderful Firefox Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I made the Add-On called 'SnapLinks (EladKarako Mod)', which also uses right mouse button to open up a mass of links in tabs.

Multi Links works far more better & efficient then snapLinks (although both uses roughly same idea). But the only one compatible with Firefox 3.6(b3/+..) new script-engine (runs scripts async and in background).

long story short.. snapLinks users, switch to Multi-Links.
