Useful Mozilla plug-ins

MozillaTo do my job I relie on a whole series of tools.  Here are my personal favourites.
  • Rank Checker by for ranking spot checks
  • Live HTTP header for seeing what’s going on in the background.
  • Speeddial – allows you to set up to 9 pretty bookmarks (Chrome ripped it off), comes with Page Info which tells you the top level info all in one place.
  • Stumbleupon toolbar for when you get bored with the net and see something new!
  • CookieWatcher – show value of cookie in statusbar (i.e. SESSID)
  • Download Statusbar – screen real estate efficient download status indicator 
  • Firebug + Firecookie for working out how things are actually working and mocking up changes
  • PDF Download – provides more control over what happens when you click on a link for a PDF
  • User Agent Switcher – quick switch to different user agents
  • Web Developer – oldy but goody
  • FoxClocks – show time from various time zones
  • Tiny Menu – customise menu bars. Mine is a single menu that opens to reveal all of the standard Firefox menus
Can you think of any others?
