    I've really been happy with "Dict" which opens up a popup with possibly the most comprehensive definitions ever.

    Another extension that's very helpful, but currently not updated to 1.0 is Context Highlight, which lets you highlight a word or phrase (like goog's caching) in every iteration, so that you can find things on your page. Hope they update that soon.

    I have used Tabbrowser Extensions almost exclusively since starting with Firefox, and absolutely love it. It appears to be the most comprehensive and most configurable tab manager available.

    I also couldn't function without ReloadEvery, which has greatly simplified my forum-addicted life. [​IMG]

    And one useful, if nonessential, little thing is called Zoomy that puts increase/decrease/default font icons on your toolbar -- makes it much easier to negotiate the various page settings without going blind.

    Has BugMeNot kept up with the newer versions of Firefox?

    Good idea pointing that out! I use the extensionmirror all the time. It's a great resource for extensions.

    Just found another new extension that is very handy!

    Restart Firefox extension. It adds a restart option under File---Restart Firefox. Very handy when installing themes or extensions.

    Neat idea, but maybe avoid the "Enhanced Protection:"

    So everyone at Google would know you've been at www.ilovepinkthongs.com.

    I have installed ListZilla, btw, and can't find any file that it's generated. I've run it several times, but I can never fidn the file. It's not where I supposedly put it, and even a seearch of the drive doesn't fine it. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling a couple of times, too.

    EDIT: Never mind; I'm running 1.07 still.
