    Here's my extension list.

    Looks like Session Saver has been updated. I've now got an option called "Snapback tab." Pretty cool; it saves the last 10 tabs you've loaded

    Is there an easy way to export extensions? I have all my best ones on my desktop, and I'd like to get the laptop set up the same way, with all the same extensions, without downloading each one over again.

    Easy extension sync?

    Not that I'm aware of. I just export my extensions via Listzilla in HTML and start clicking away. ;)

    A MUST have extension: MR Tech Local Install extension!!!!!!!!!

    While it does lots of things, the most important and best feature to me is the ability to force extensions to work when FF upgrades. Basically, it goes in a changes the max version setting inside the extension for you in a couple of quick clicks instead of having to edit the .xpi file yourself.

    Edit: Here is a better description of some of the features it adds:

    1. Adds a restart button to the tool bar
    2. Incorporates the function of the listzilla extension
    3. When in the extensions screen you are given tons of options by simply right clicking on a given extension, including the option to make it compatible with the current version of FF.
    4. Organizes extensions alphabetically.
    5. The ability to automatically save extensions and themes.
    6. And the kitchen sink (see Help--->About;?---> about kitchen sink) ;)

    I finally tracked down a working version of Favicon that works with the latest Firefox build :)

    (Favicon_Picker 0.3.0)

    Gives you the ability to erase/set favicons in your bookmarks.

    I don't think that version of Update Notifier is compatible with 2.0. As far as I know they haven't released a new version yet.

    I forced compatibility with MR Tech Local Install and it seems to work fine.

    So you went back to 2.0?

    tke711 Oink Oink Staff Member

    Yep. Once I saw that TBP was updated, I decided to give it a try again. Spellbound Dev also took a bit to get up and running ,but once I reinstalled the dictionary it was fine.

    So far, so good with all the extensions running above.

    Compose Gmail from the Firefox Search Box

    This is a pretty nifty tool. Allows you to compose new GMail messages straight from Firefox's search bar.

    * Click on the link
    * Click on the Open Search plug-in Mail button in the bottom left to install.
    * Mail will now be available as one of your search options in the Firefox search bar.
