Firefox extensions I use - and other info

    Since Mozilla Suite is no longer being developed, and Firefox is where everything is going, I decided it was time for me to make the jump. In the process I picked up a number of extensions and thought I'd document them in one place.

    AniDisable - control animated gifs
    Checky - links to validation services for XHTML, XML, CSS, etc.
    ChromEdit - profile editor
    ColorZilla - allows you to pick up a color from any element in the browser
    Disable Targets For Downloads - prevents empty windows/tabs when you click a binary link
    EditCSS - make realtime tweaks to a pages CSS
    FoxyTunes - control your media player (iTunes, WinAmp, etc) from the browser chrome
    Html Validator (based on Tidy) - validate HTML right in the browser, locally
    I must not fear! - OK, so this just adds the line from Dune to the Tools menu. I like it. ;-)
    ieview - open the current page in ie, useful for development testing
    Image Zoom - pretty much what it sounds like
    JavaScript Debugger - what it says
    Linkification - makes plaintext URLs links
    Linky - adds options for handling links
    Longdesc - let's you view the longdesc attribute on images
    miniT (drag+indicator) - drag tabs to reorder
    Preferential - advanced preferences editor
    Tabbrowser Preferences - provides a UI for editing hidden tab preferences
    TinyUrl Creator - easily create a TinyURL from the current page
    User Agent Switcher - lets you mimic other user agents
    View Cookies - adds a tab to Page Info showing the cookies set by the page
    Web Developer - adds a toolbar with web development tools

    Anyone want to suggest something I should check out that I missed?

    I also find this most useful - there are UIs in Firefox that aren't accessible. The chrome is there from the Suite, but the 'simplified' UI of FF has removed the links to the sub-elements:

    For example: chrome://pippki/content/pref-ssl.xul - which also brings you here: chrome://pippki/content/pref-ciphers.xul - I like to disable weak ciphers.
