Hey you, yes you over there. You are being tracked! From web analytics to ad serving, you get tracked when you visit just about any website out there. If you are paranoid concerned about such things, then you should pick up the Firefox add-on called, DoNotTrackMe.

Tired of seeing YouTube blocked? In some countries – I am told – YouTube videos are totally blocked. That is not exactly fair, is it? Thankfully though, if you find yourself in one of these places – you have ProxTube to help save the day. This add-on will unblock YouTube videos.
Need a way to generate a temporary email address? These can come in handy if you need to provide your email address to sign up for something, but you don’t want them to send you tons of spam. The extension, Less Spam Please, will generate a disposable, reusable and anonymous real mail address when you need it.
Work with a lot of tabs? Then you have probably seen the All Tabs menu (the menu at the right of the tabs bar) a whole lot. This bar allows you to manipulate tabs – but there isn’t too much you can do by default. One add-on that changes that is called All Tabs Helper. It gives you much more functionality to this heavily used Firefox feature.
Do you want to customize the Gmail interface to your liking and strip away the ads? The Firefox extension, Gmelius, will do that and much more. It is the sleekest Gmail related add-on for Firefox I have seen in a long time.
The QuickWiki extension for Firefox gives you the ability to quickly lookup a word in Wiktionary or Wikipedia without needing to open a new tab up to do so. I have been using this add-on for a while and I do have to say it does make it a little easier to look up words on these two wiki services. If you find yourself quoting either of these sources very often – then this extension is a must download.
The Empty Cache Button add-on for Firefox will enable you to quickly empty your browser’s cache and reload the page you are on in a single click of the mouse. As I have mentioned in the past – I love it when a Firefox add-on works as advertised and this one does exactly that.
Finding yourself making a lot of typos when it comes to typing in certain domain names? How many times have you tried to go to google.con, for example? URL Fixer is a great restartless add-on for Firefox that fixes common typos in URLs that you input into the address (or awesome) bar of Firefox.
I have taken a look at Qute and Qute like theme before – but this is the first time I have looked at Qute for any Firefox after version 3.6 or so (yes, I find the version numbers a little silly myself now). My thoughts aside, Qute4++ is definitely worth trying out if you are using the latest version of the Firefox browser.
