The Open link in… add-on for Firefox adds context menu items for opening links and images in a new background tab (or foreground tab if your tabs normally open in the background), in a new background or foreground window, and in the current tab. Optionally gathers items into a submenu.

Want to set the maximum number of tabs Firefox can open? I am sure there is a good reason for doing this, because somebody has built and extension for it in Firefox. Max Tabs will set a maximum number of open tabs in a window.
Need a quick way to open up all the tabs you have open in Firefox? As you may have already noticed – Firefox 4 has a pretty nifty "Switch to Tab" function that allows you to switch to an open tab, rather than re-launching the same website twice. What if you could open up all the open tabs in the Awesome bar?
Mozilla’s open and free alternative to Chrome’s web store is up and running. It might not be much to look at just yet, but it does show a lot of promise when it comes to how Mozilla will handle it’s own open web apps store. Developers who are interested in developing apps for the browser can do so very easily. The OWA Application Manifest is now stable, so there is no more worry about changing code or policy there.
Want to create your own Firefox search plugin? The steps on how to do this used to be a lot easier back in the early days of Firefox, but now with the OpenSearch protocol in all modern browsers – the steps are a little more difficult. Have no fear though, because I have found a resource that will make creating your own Firefox search plugin easy again and it takes only a few simple steps.
There has been a lot of buzz about a Firefox add-on named Firesheep. I have kind of ignored the topic for some time, but after getting a few emails from Firefox users asking what it is about – I thought it might be time to shed some light on the topic – so that all Firefox users know it is out there. Firesheep snoops fro cookies, and then allows others to log into websites as you if you are browsing on an open wireless network.
New Tab Homepage is a very simple and lightweight add-on for Firefox. When you open a new tab in Firefox, it will open your default homepage – rather than an empty tab. While I am using Firefox, I frequently go back to my homepage to check my mail or the latest updates in my RSS reader – so this extension seems like a very obvious evolution of the opening a new tab process.
Looking for a Firefox tab extension that does a little ‘bit of everything? Look no further than Tab Utilities.
This add-on for Firefox really is your proverbial utility knife when it comes to controlling, editing or optimizing your browser tabs for better performance.
