    Good list. I installed Firefox 2 days ago and went through the first few pages of popular extensions. I came across ‘Awesome Screenshot’ and you’re right. Unbelievably useful.

    I haven’t run Firefox for a couple of years but this latest version has improved its’ speed substantially on a netbook and so I’m looking forward to using this browser more often now.

  2. thumbnail zoom is good rest is ok..

    Nice list, thx! Was already wondering what’s working in FF4 and what not since some of my older plugins do not work anymore.

    Funny side note: The screenshot used by “awesome screenshot” looks like a screenshot from Google Chrome 😉
