You know, from an add-on called, Flagfox – I do not really expect much. So it shows a country flag depicting the location of the current website’s server location. That is neat and all, but not really helping me become a more functional website browser. What you might not know though is there is more to this simple add-on that just flags.

With Firefox 4 being right around the corner, are all of your favorite add-ons and themes going to make the cut? In my own opinion, I think that the drastic changes in both the backend of Firefox and the visual frontend will lead to a lot broken add-ons and favorite themes.
