Greasemonkey by Anthony Lieuallen, Aaron Boodman, others

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 993 reviews

1,255,466 users

Customize the way a web page displays or behaves, by using small bits of JavaScript.
Collector's Note Greasemonkey allows Greasemonkey scripts to run. A Greasemonkey script is like a mini-addon. Treat a Greasemonkey script like an .exe in the sense that you should only install scripts from developers you trust. Much like add-ons.

Stylish by Jason Barnabe

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 817 reviews

460,675 users

Restyle the web with Stylish, a user styles manager. Stylish lets you easily install themes and skins for Google, Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, and many, many other sites. You can even customize Firefox and other programs themselves.
Collector's Note userstyles.org has been down for a few weeks, I hope it comes back up soon making this useful again. I'll put in a new comment then.

Evernote Web Clipper by Evernote

Rated 2 out of 5 stars 904 reviews

374,885 users

Use the Evernote Web Clipper to save things you see on the web into your Evernote account.

FEBE by Chuck_Baker

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 654 reviews

109,934 users

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your extensions individually into installable .xpi files.
Collector's Note If you get this, be sure to get CLEO. Together these programs let you save your extensions into a single xpi that makes it easy for anyone to install all of your extensions in one go. I have more to say in my CLEO comment.

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader by feedly

Download Now

Experimental

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 3,598 reviews

68,568 users

A productive way to organize, read and share the content of your favorite feeds, blogs and news sites. Feedly offers a seamless transition from Google Reader.
Collector's Note This is great if you have more RSS feeds in Google Reader than you know what to do with. Instead of trying to read every article of every feed, you can "create your own newspaper" in the words of a venerable old web site from the Netscape 2 era, or rather, Feedly creates it for you. When you save or mark a favorite, the changes carry over to Google Reader. Feedly gives you several different views of your Google Reader feeds, you are bound to find at least a few useful. Feedly will even pop-up articles relevant to the page you are currently viewing (I know you are skeptical because you remember old Internet Explorer 4 era junk like Alexa Toolbar, but Feedly bases it on actual page content, not the domain). Feedly is highly configurable, but you don't have to configure it all to get benefits from it. It also integrates Twitter and Friendfeed by default if you are into that sort of thing, as well as Youtube and Delicious.

CacheViewer by benki

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 224 reviews

59,452 users

This extenion is GUI Front-end of "about:cache"...
Collector's Note I don't use CacheViewer everyday, but say you are on a particularly hard-to-navigate web site looking for printable coloring pages for your kids. It may be better to just grab those pictures from the browser cache, which is what this add-on allows you to do easily.

Greasefire by Steve Krulewitz, Erik Vold

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 176 reviews

10,477 users

Automatically find user scripts on Userscripts.org (requires Greasemonkey or Scriptish)
Collector's Note Greasefire works in conjunction with Greasemonkey to quickly let you find Greasemonkey scripts that work on the page you are on.

CLEO by Chuck_Baker

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 43 reviews

7,202 users

CLEO (Compact Library Extension Organizer) is a Firefox extension that works with FEBE* to package any number of extensions/themes into a single, installable .xpi file.
Collector's Note If you get this, be sure to get FEBE. CLEO and FEBE together are the real add-on collector. They consolidate a group of extensions into a single .xpi. When you install it, all the extensions appear separately as if you had installed them one-by-one. An impressive trick, a lot cleaner than the collections model here where people have to install an add-on to install your add-ons. Although as you can tell, I find the Firefox Collections feature useful as well.

Multiple Tab Handler by Piro (piro_or)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 180 reviews

17,649 users

Provides feature to close multiple tabs.
Collector's Note This does a lot more than just closing multiple tabs. Ever wanted to use Ctrl-Click or Shift-Click to select multiple tabs? With Multiple Tab Handler, after selecting multiple tabs, you can do things like closing the other tabs, saving the selected tabs to a bookmark folder, or copying the URLs of the tabs. Extremely configurable.

Linkification by y5

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 309 reviews

24,363 users

Converts text links into genuine, clickable links...
Collector's Note The most common use for Linkification is for web pages that show a URL for another site but for some reason, they neglected to make it into a link. Linkification makes it clickable.

Linky by gemal

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 121 reviews

11,005 users

Linky will increase your power to handle links. ...
Collector's Note This is one of those extensions that is utterly useless up until the day you need it! You can among other things open up a whole lot of links selected from a web page at once. When you use this, it is handy to have multiple rows of tabs enabled. (I use Tab Mix Plus for this but there are a lot of other ways, too.)

Drag & DropZones by Captain Caveman, Andy Portmen

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 130 reviews

10,555 users

Get rid of that clumsy context menu, and search the web using up to 100 stylish Drag & DropZones
Collector's Note Drag and drop selected text to any searchbar based search engine, not just the default one.

Better Gmail 2 by Gina Trapani

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 516 reviews

12,194 users

Add useful extra features to Gmail, like hierarchical labels, an unread message icon on your browser tab, file attachment icons, and more.
Collector's Note Although it shows the little Greasemonkey icon, Greasemonkey is not required for Better Gmail 2. Gina Trapani of Lifehacker has bunched up a bunch of scripts into a single configurable add-on that gives some subtle tweaks to the Gmail interface. I am currently not using this and I don't seem to be missing it too much. I will reevaluate it soon.

Universal Search & IE 8 Accelerator by BetterBrowser

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 34 reviews

1,073 users

Allows you to search highlighted text with any of the installed search engines. It also allow you to use IE8 accelerators to preview or search highlighted text.
Collector's Note My main use for this is to make it easy to run your favorite searches on selected text. Drag & DropZones does something like this too on a larger scale, but it pays to put a few favorites close to the cursor as well

Vista-aero by Fly_world

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 688 reviews

9,822 users

The most IE8-like theme with Vista Aero style!
Collector's Note I think the IE8 concept of color tabs, where color is an indicator of where a link is clicked from, not the domain, is very functional and something Microsoft got right. I couldn't find exactly this functionality in ChromaTabs or ColorfulTabs and ironically I found it in the Vista-aero theme, with the side effect that it does go a little overboard in copying the IE8 look. (Slight incompatibility with Firefox 3.5 was fixed on the day of Firefox 3.5's official release, fantastic!) I currently am not using it, because although I like the IE8 implementation of color tabs, I don't want my Firefox to look like IE. One of these days, I am going to ask the author if he would consider extracting out the color tabs feature into its own addon.
