Need to add or edit entries in the Firefox password manager? The Saved Password Editor extension for Firefox gives you this ability.

If you want full control over the passwords your browser saves, this is a great add-on to grab.
Is your right-click context menu in Firefox getting a little bloated? If you go through a lot of extensions for Firefox, you can sometimes end up with more items in the right-click menu than you want. Then again, sometimes you might just want to move one option to the top while leaving lesser used options at the bottom. The Menu Editor extension for Firefox will let you customize that right-click context menu.
TableTools2 is a great Firefox add-on that will allow you to do all kinds of useful things with tables you find online.

The add-on is also very fast and works with older versions of Firefox too.

I think everybody, at times, would like to be able to customize certain web sites to better meet their goals. Now, I am not talking about simple visual edits – like making the background black and the text white. How about adding keyboard shortcuts for certain web site links and navigation elements? You an do that and more with the Customize Your Web add-on for Firefox.
So do you want to customize web sites without writing one single line of code? Check out this video tutorial for a little more information about the Customize Your Web add-on for Firefox.
Some of the other customizations featured include:
- Removal and rearrangement of elements (cut / copy / paste behavior)
Modifying of elements in every possible way (changing size, color, default values etc.)
- Definition of keyboard shortcuts / shortstrings for any clickable element (shortstrings are multi-character shortcuts, e.g. "SO" for a "Sign out" Button)
- Adding keyboard navigation support for any list of elements (e.g. for the result entries of search)
- Definition of small macros which are triggered by a shortcut
- Automatically triggering actions on page load (e.g. for automatic click on a login button or focusing a special field)
I am just having fun playing around with this add-on figuring out all the things I can do with it. For some, it might seem a little complex, however there is extensive documentation to help you along.
Want to tweak the way the download manager from within Firefox works? You can now tweak the way downloads are handled in a number different ways with the Download Manager Tweak add-on for Firefox.

Firefox 3.5’s new tab button has already been established as a feature some people like and some people could do without. However, what if you could tweak it visually to meet your needs? That is what some people have done, and here are the eight most popular new tab button hacks out there today.
Please Note: To use any of these, you will need to have the Firefox add-on Stylish installed.
No Icon Image Until Click – New tab button icon does not appear until you CLICK on it instead of when you hover because there is another style that produces that effect.
Tiny + 3D(Special Effects) – New Tab Button on the tab bar is tiny and when you click on it, it changes.
Left Side New Tab Button – Move the new tab button to the left of the tab bar, instead of the far right of the tab bar.
