Some more that I like:

IE Tab - similar to IE View above

Web Developer - similar to FireBug, probably not as functional but more accessible as a result

Remove Cookies for Site - when you just can't get logged on to this forum

View Source Chart - there's nothing quite like this, splits the code of the current page into colour-coded, collapsible sections for easy interpretation and problem diagnosing. This is an "experimental" version for FF3, the developer shows signs of making this purchase only, so not really in the open source spirit

FlagFox - more fun than anything else but might save you from a spoofed site one day. Shows which country the current website's host is in - you get some eye-openers e.g. the UK's somewhat reactionary and isolationist-leaning newspaper the Daily Mail wobbles between US and Dutch hosts!

It's maybe possible, but I didn't see any other extentions in there,
so I opened nvu_edit_036.xpi with Firefox directly and it worked
the same like installing from the extension page.

Here's another useful one: TimeTracker. This records the total amount of time you have spent using Firefox on a given day - it stops counting if you aren't active or minimize the window.

I've installed it on my work computer ... oops, better go!
