Script Skipper 3.x

Disable javascript for sites with a click of a button. This is the original application by its author Josh Schmidt. It is a greatly useful extension for which I have simply changed the max version to work with FF 3.x.x. Works fine for me. Try it!

Script Skipper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great script. Gets rid of so many problems so easily. This version only works on FF to 2.0. I have updated it for latest version of FF 3.6.8. Search for it as Script Skipper 3.x

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent! Way better than No-script since it uses a black list. No-script only keeps a white list, which is way more cumbersome. This speeds up sites that have ads that waste my time and cause me to scroll to see the real content. Thanks!

Open IT Online

What does it do? How? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Please post a more detailed description. How does this editing work? What about privacy? Does it open FF for possible exploits? I will not try this until more is known, but sounds promising.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Greasemonkey

TOP extension, but needs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the most useful and versatile FF extension ever, since it allows modification of virtually any HTML page using javascript.

One shortfall is that Greasemonkey changes the HTML only after the page has fully loaded, meaning that any tweaks designed to save load time are rendered useless. Is there a way to intercept and modify the code before it reaches the browser? This would make the ultimate page modification tool!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.20070607.0). 

Notary

Essential extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I wish more people would try (and rate) this highly useful extension. It enables TB to be a much more useful contact management tool. Every incoming or outgoing message can have hidden notes. Helps me keep track of why I save emails in the first place.

Slideshow

Great way to see photos Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This an excellent and useful extension providing a more convenient way to see and manipulate the size of attached images. Thunderbird should really have a built-in "fit to screen" option as a default for inline photo viewing. Slieshow works with both the "inline" and (default) "undisplayed" photo view settings within thunderbird. Perfect for large photos which otherwise are virtually impossible to see without opening a graphics program. With Slideshow, I can easily preview all attached photos before deciding which to open or save.

Needs a bit more work (see discussion), but an excellent start.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9).
