In a little more detail...

I believe the web user should always be in control.

I am interested in the web and user rights on line, and support Firefox and Mozilla as they have always been at the forefront of a free web.

Confirmed! Workaround for firefox 3.6

http://silverwav.wordpress.com/2010/06/08/platypus-workaround-for-firefox-3-6-use-a-firefox-3-5-profile/

1. The Problem.
What to do when Platypus will no longer work with Firefox 3.6?
2. The Solution.
* Platypus works fine with Firefox 3.5.9.
* So create a profile and install platypus with Firefox 3.5.9.
* Now upgrade to Firefox 3.6.
Yeah! It still works!
3. Quick Hack Here.
Use the blank profile I have created for my own use here.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox Sync (Weave) is very impressive. I have been testing with 6 machines, flawless.

Works with 3.5.9
Workaround1 for 3.6* is to use the 3.5.9 profile, then "make compatible" with Mr Tech Toolkit)
Workaround2 for 3.6* is to use the 3.5.9 profile, then "bump version to 3.6*" open the xpi (with a zip manager), alter the "max version" line in the file "intall.rdf" (with a text editor), then save changes, restart firefox.

Hide Caption

Very Useful - Hide Title Bar, small and efficient. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tip: Turn on "Title in Status-Bar" - then you can remove the "Title Spacer" from the top. Cleaner look and good use of status-bar with no loss of functionality (hover over a link and it shows up as usual). Cannot praise this extension enough. The "M" Button can be lost in a dark theme.

RequestPolicy

A real eye-opener. - I have allowed some destinations that I trust, but for the rest I just enable them temporarily when needed.
