Firefox extesions I use

More for me to find again than you to read about, but still... oh and I finally broke down and found a Firefox icon.

Get international weather forecasts from AccuWeather.com, and display it in any toolbar or statusbar with this highly customizable and unobtrusive extension.

Bookmark Backup
Bookmark Backup is a simple extension that helps to keep your bookmarks (and optionally other Firefox settings) safe. Each time Firefox is closed, a copy of your bookmarks file will be made to a backup location. If Firefox's bookmarks become corrupted or lost, find the most recent uncorrupted backup and copy it into your profile folder.

Allows Firefox (0.9+) to view plain-text URLs and e-mail addresses as actual links

Copy Plain Text
Copies text without formatting

Tabbrowser Preferences
This extension provides a comprehensive UI for changing a number of the hidden tabbed browsing preferences in Firefox. It also provides the ability to control how internal and external links are opened in the browser and how the browser will react when links are sent to it.

TinyUrl Creator
This extension brings the http://tinyurl.com functionality closer to your fingertips. It will convert a long URL into a much smaller, more managable one which is easier to share through email and instant messanger. This

IE Tab
An extension from Taiwan, features: Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla/Firefox. This is a great tool for web developers, since you can easily see how your webpage displayed in IE with just one click and then switch back to Firefox. (CRK note - I no longer have to click the big blue E to do things that "require IE". Frackin' ActiveX...)

Something has been corrupting my bookmarks lately; I lose them every couple of weeks or so, which is annoying as all get out. Why I hadn't put the Bookmark Backup extension on this computer until now is a mystery.

Also, I use the older version of Forecast Fox that takes the weather from the Weather Channel. I've heard it's more accurate; your mileage may vary.
