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.
Wouldn’t the Facebook “Like” function be a lot more handy if you could do it from anywhere? The LikeThisPage add-on for Firefox allows you to bring the Like button with you as you browse the web and share things with your friends on Facebook along the way.
Most websites and blogs these days give you the Facebook like button on the articles you read from day to day. However, some websites still do not. That is when the LikeThisPage add-on for Firefox comes in handy. Easily share web pages you like with your friends and see how many people on Facebook like the page you are on!
With PeekURL you can see a preview of a shortened website address. This tool comes in handy because it can confirm that you are not being sent to a “bad” website.
Before Firefox 4, the menu items for the browser – such as File, Edit, View, History and more were all over the place. After Firefox 4 was released though, Mozilla simplified the menu toolbar and dumped everything under the Firefox button. What if you want things to be even more compact than that? Then you need to pick up Compact Menu 2.
