Send to Google Docs: Upload and Open Microsoft documents, PDFs and HTML web pages directly in your Google Docs account without downloading them to the hard drive. Gmail has this nice feature where you can open PDF files and Office documents directly in your Google Docs account bypassing the need of any desktop software like Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Office. If you find this Gmail feature handy, you’ll probably also enjoy using the “Send to Google Docs” extension for Firefox.
Firefox 3 's new Smart Location Bar earns its unofficial title of "AwesomeBar" right out of the box. The location bar suggests web site addresses as you type from your bookmarks and history, and learns as you surf, ranking pages you visit more often higher. Still, there aren't a whole lot of ways to configure the "AwesomeBar"'s behavior in Firefox's default options dialog—but there are a few new Firefox extensions that can do it for you. Here are four Firefox 3 add-ons that adjust the smart location bar's behavior in small but useful ways. Edit Middle 2 By default the "AwesomeBar" suggests URLs based on what you type, but not if you go into a word and edit it in the middle.
Windows/Mac/Linux (Firefox): You can always customize where you want files you grab in Firefox to end up, but a catch-all "Downloads" folder, or just a desktop, often ends up seriously cluttered. Free Firefox extension FavLoc lets you set pre-defined locations where you'll likely place files and send them there directly from your right-click menu. For dual-booters like myself, it's really handy, as you can see above, but it's also useful for sorting the images, pictures, programs, and all the other downloads any avid browser ends up grabbing. FavLoc is a free download, and works wherever Firefox does. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Note: watch the URL Fixer section of my blog for information on updates to this extension. URL Fixer is an extension for Mozilla Firefox that corrects typos in URLs that you enter in the address bar. For example, if you type google.con, it will correct it to google.com (asking first, if you enable confirmation).
Installation: Access previous versions . Configuration: Help tooltips are available for every configuration option. * On older applications without an Addons widow (Non-recent Seamonkey, etc), enter in the address bar: chrome://smoothwheel/content/prefoverlay.xul Changelog:

Screenshot of an Entire Page Captured Using Page Saver Pearl Crescent Page Saver is an extension for Mozilla Firefox that lets you capture images of web pages, including Flash content. These images can be saved in PNG or JPEG format. Using Page Saver, you can capture an entire page or just the visible portion. You can control the image capture process via a wide variety of settings, including the image file name and scale (e.g., save at 50% of original size). Page Saver is available in two editions: Basic and Pro.
All platforms with Firefox: The Tabinta extension lets you insert the Tab character inside a web page textarea. By default hitting Tab will send your cursor onto the next form field in Firefox, but Tabinta overrides this behavior and instead inserts the Tab character, like in a word processor. If you like to sometimes Tab to the next field but sometimes insert the Tab character, you can assign a different key to represent the Tab in Tabinta's Preferences dialog. Tabinta's a lifesaver for bloggers who use Texter for post markup with Tab as a trigger. Tabinta is a free download which works with and wherever Firefox does. —Gina Trapani
All platforms running Firefox: The Resurrect Pages extension lets you visit offline websites that are unavailable for one reason or another. Resurrect Pages displays a list of options on the "Server Not Found" page in Firefox and links to popular cached pages like Google Cache, Yahoo! Cache, The Internet Archive, etc. that could let you check out the site even if the server is down. Powerhouse sites like Slashdot and Digg can bring a server to its knees.
Windows/Mac/Linux (Firefox): The MeeTimer Firefox extension tracks how much time you spend on different web sites and helps categorize the time spent to give you an idea of where your browsing time has gone. You can create as many "Groups" as possible for categorizing your web browsing, but the defaults are Procrastination, Communication, and Search. Then you can assign any web site you visit regularly to a category. In time, MeeTimer will give you a very well organized overview of where you've been doing all of your surfing, and if you've categorized items, it should also help give you a quick look at whether the time you've spent has been productive or not.
Windows/Mac/Linux (Firefox): The Smart Digg Button shows you if a site has already been submitted to Digg—and lets you submit it yourself if it hasn't. Built around a new Digg API, this ingenious Firefox extension (which doesn't really look like a button) sits in the Status Bar. If a particular site has already been dugg, the button shows you the tally; clicking it takes you to the corresponding Digg page. If there's no existing Digg entry, the button reads Digg This; clicking it lets you do exactly that.
When your filtering through results returned by a search engine it can take quite awhile to filter through them trying to find what you’re looking for. One thing that I think most people will agree with is that you’ll normally find what you’re looking for in the first ten results that are provided…and Snap Links can quickly open all of those links for you. To use the extension all you have to do is hold down the right mouse button and draw a box around the links that you want it to open.
