Collector's Note The best screenshot capturing addon out there. Caution: It will ask you to try Fireshot Pro for one month at the time of installation -- DO NOT ACCEPT THE OFFER! Otherwise you will begin to see nag screens asking you to pay for an upgrade. Re-installing the addon will not help. The addon works fine as it is, you do not need the pro version.
Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox's tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more. It also includes a full-featured session manager.
Collector's Note An absolutely indispensable addon. A few words of note : (A). You can also use Tab Mix Plus's Session manager instead of the separate addon 'Session Manager'. But the advantages of Session manager are 1. More powerful, Stores more sessions 2. If you also have the addon "Session Manager Export tool" then you can export and save your sessions. (B) Tab Mix Plus can be made even more powerful if you use it alongwith two more addons - Multiple Tab Handler and Tab Groups Manager. ............................... I am using Firefox 18 at the time of writing. And these days I prefer Tab Utilities over Tab Mix Plus because it allows me to stack Tabs like Opera. Tab Mix Plus so far does not have this function. Also I use the addon Tab Kit 2nd Edition which plays better with TU than with TMP. The advantages of Tab Mix Plus are that although it offers fewer functions than Tab utilities, those functions are solidly built and complete. Also most developers who make tab related addons ensure that their addons are compatible with Tab Mix Plus, so TMP works well with most other Tab related addons (except Tab Kit 2nd Edition which works with Tab Utilities better because both were developed by the same guy)
Control a new, trickier kind of cookie, better known as an LSO or Flash cookie. The BetterPrivacy safeguard offers various ways to handle Flash-cookies created by webpages with the help of your Flash plug-in...
Collector's Note A heavy addon(in terms of RAM consumption, not in terms of its size ). Nobody knows how efficacious it is. You probably do not need it. I think it does improve the long term health of a firefox installation a bit, but can't say for sure.

Session Manager saves and restores the state of all or some windows - either when you want it or automatically at startup and after crashes. It can also automatically save the state of open windows individually.
Collector's Note You can also use Tab Mix Plus's Session manager instead of this. But the advantages of Session manager are 1. More powerful, Stores more sessions 2. If you also have the addon "Session Manager Export tool" then you can export and save your sessions.
A customizable mouse gestures extension which enables to execute various commands and user scripts with six types of gestures.
Collector's Note This is a better, more stable, faster Gesture navigation addon than the more famous competitor All-in-One Gestures. But, do not install this addon if you have more than 30 addons. It slows down firefox a slight bit. For a guy like me with 150+ enabled addons, that slight bit of slowing is not acceptable.
The quick and easy way to delete your browsing history, erase all temporary internet files, remove downloaded files history, cookies, Flash LSO, typed URLs. Allows to delete private data when Firefox closes. Supported ext. tools like CCleaner.
Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won't get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on...
Collector's Note The best flashblocking addon from among all of them. This is one of the few flashblockers that save bandwidth by preventing flash content from loading on a page before it is rendered. There are other flashblockers that let flash load, and then block it, which hardly saves any bandwidth.
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 Its main purpose for which most people use it is to sync Bookmarks between computers. For syncing bookmarks, X-Marks is THE ADDON! However I want to draw attention to another of its functions i.e Syncing Tabs. Two addons can be used to sync open Tabs between computers i.e X-Marks and Tab Cloud. The advantage of TabCloud is - It can save multiple browsing sessions, so you can restore different sessions on different computers as you need. X-Marks merely stores the tabs that are open at the time of syncing and overwrites those tabs when you sync once again. I suggest that you use both X-Marks and Tab Cloud - X-Marks to sync Bookmarks, History and Passwords; and Tab Cloud to sync open Tabs.
