This extension no longer works with Google's account sign-in page. Google seems to have butchered the original form to make the username field no longer appear to be a form field at all, so now even though a username may be stored it isn't inserted, only the password is inserted, and so thus the login fails for having no username! It only works if the the username is either typed by hand or cut-and-pasted; the extension leaves it blank even when the username exists in the DB.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.9).
For those who want to use it in Firefox 4 and cannot yet, don't bother begging! The author already knows and is working on it:
"Feature list below has not been fully updated for 4.0 release, update coming soon."
(from the mrtech.com Web site, main page for this extension)
Other reviewers are correct: as of v3.0.5 (2011-03-24) this extension still doesn't work with Firefox 4. To be more specific: when attempting to click on its icon in either the Add-on bar (created automatically by Firefox?) or one added manually to a toolbar, to expose a context menu, the menu becomes a tiny little barely visible rectangle just below the icon.
Aside from the fact that it's completely unusable in Firefox 4, this extension is unique and indispensable... which is precisely why it needs to be fixed for Firefox 4!
If this happens to become unsupported and obsolete, there's a very similar add-on called the Element Hiding Helper for AdBlock Plus. It also stores rules for permanent removal of page elements, and it also uses a WYSIWYG approach and has already been updated for Firefox 4.
Also, NEVER download and install an unverified XPI file from an unknown source (e.g. box.net)! You could be walking right into a malware trap. How do you know what's been done to that XPI file? If all you need is a version bump, there are automated tools, like MR Tech Toolkit, that can force compatibility with new FF versions. Of course things might break doing it, so caveat emptor/YMMV/etc.

The Web site is now reported by Google as heavily infested with malware (reported attack page), and reviews above suggest the author is AWOL. Hopefully someone else decides to shepherd this beyond 3.x, but in the meantime devoted fans might need to use something like MR Tech Toolkit (which itself is awaiting an update) to force compatibility with new (4.x+) versions....
This useless extension doesn't work at all. It installs, all right, and adds an entry to the context menu, but using "Title Save" to attempt to save a Web page results in a standard Save dialog with the original name of the remote file, NOT the title of the page.
This extension is just junk.
