Crucial Firefox extensions

+ del.icio.us plugin -- Add/remove/edit del.icio.us bookmarks from a right mouse click.

* Foxylicious -- grabs your del.icio.us bookmarks and adds them to your local Firefox bookmarks.

* sitebar plugin -- An alternative to del.icio.us. I started running a copy of the SiteBar server on my home Linux box, but it is just simpler to use del.icio.us and for private bookmarks to just keep it locally (internal corporate links, etc)

* webdeveloper plugin -- I don't use it much, but it is handy to find any links within a webpage.

* SwitchProxy tool -- switch proxies as needed. Useful when if you connect to various networks with different proxies settings.

  1. One of my favorite Mozilla/Firefox widgets is actually a bookmarklet that only works on their browser: computed styles. Google around for it. When things don't layout as you expect, it will dump all the CSS hierarchy that's relevant to that point on the page to help you figure out why. It's helped me solve plenty of "why did this end up this way" layout problems.
    But thanks for the recommendations. I want to look into sitebar.
