Make any pages' search functionality available in the Search Bar (or "search box")...
Collector's Note You can add many search engines to your firefox search bar from the Mycroft Project website. I use search engines for many purposes from searching Song lyrics, to use the dictionary and the thesaurus, to search for an email in my GMail inbox, to search for people on Facebook etc. This addon is indispensable to me. I use it in the following ways (A). From the mycroft project website, I have added Google search for pages within the last 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 1 year to the search box. This is immensely helpful. If I want latest news, I only search for webpages that have been updated/created within the last 1 day/1 week and so on. If I want to know about the latest research on Down's syndrome, I search using the Google search for 1 year. Perfect! (B). My translation needs are very basic. I use these three more efficient methods to translate pages or text within pages: 1. Bookmarklets 2. Flagfox addon 3. Simply go to the google translate page and use the "Add to Search bar" addon to right click in the translate box and Add it to your firefox search engines! Voila, now you can simply paste text in your firefox search bar and get its translation in a new tab. It becomes even better if you use the addon "Selected Search" too. With Selected Search, you don't need to paste your text in the search bar and press enter. If you have 'Selected Search' you only need to select the text you want to have translated and then press the button for google translate among the search engines that pop-up - a new tab with the translation pops up.
A browser Extension for auto loading paginated web pages
Collector's Note An indispensable addon. AutaPagerize is Far far far far far better than Autopager, or Autopager Lite or any other addons which profess to do the same thing. (I must caution you against the AutoPager addons. Many people rate those addons highly. But over a period of months, it bloats up firefox and massively slows it down and eventually causes Firefox to begin crashing. They best used by those who know a bit of computer science)

Themes Menu by Chris
Adds Themes menu to the Tools and Titlebar menus. Includes toolbar icon.
Copies text without formatting
Collector's Note You can use Copy plain text alone or with another addon which enhances its function even more. Copy Plain Text 2 integrates with another addon "Autocopy 2". Autocopy 2 enables you to autocopy text as soon as you highlight it without pressing Ctrl+C. If you use Copy plain text 2 with Autocopy 2 then you can autocopy everything as plain text if you wish.
Check4Change (aka C4C) is a simple extension that allows you to select a part of a web-page, and get notified when it changes.
Collector's Note If you want to check a page for changes occurring over a period of days/weeks/months, use "Update Scanner". If you want to be alerted about changes that occur over seconds/minutes/hours, use "Check4Change". Following RSS Feeds, if a page makes them available is the best way to keep abreast of changes made to a webpage, but if a webpage does not make RSS feeds available, then using "Update Scanner" or "Check4Change" is the only way to check whether any changes have been made to the webpage.
1) Capture an page or just a specific region.
2) Adds a right click option to take screen shots of an entire web page or just part of a web page to save as an image.
