IE Tab - an extension from Taiwan, features: Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla/Firefox...
Collector's Note Helpful for those sites that insist on being optimized for Internet Explorer. I've found this can be a little glitchy so is best used only for viewing pages rather than doing serious work.

A customizable mouse gestures extension which enables to execute various commands and user scripts with six types of gestures.
Collector's Note Very useful for actions you repeat continuously, and easier on your hands. You can modify gestures to your own needs. I use this for Back, Forward, Jump to Top, Jump to Bottom, Close, Next Tab. I find it less helpful for the more exotic functions.

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!

Screengrab by Andy M

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 571 reviews

12,449 users

Screengrab! saves webpages as images... but not for new versions of Firefox.

FF changes too fast and I don't have the time to maintain it anymore. Bugs have developed that I am not in a position to investigate.

Therefore, Screengrab is EOL.
Collector's Note Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
