  • Firebug
    Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page.
    Simple description for this software: it’s the greatest.

  • IE Tab
    IE Tab is a great tool for web developers, since you can easily see how your web page displayed in IE with just one click and then switch back to Firefox.
    Sorry that it didn’t work with Firefox 4.

    Restyle the web with Stylish, a user styles manager. Stylish lets you easily install themes and skins for Google, Facebook, YouTube, Orkut, and many, many other sites. You can even customize Firefox and other programs themselves.

  • Pixlr Grabber
    Grabbing screens and pulling images from the web just got a bit easier. With the Pixlr Grabber add-on, you can copy, save, share or even edit your final grabs - including any image or background - with just a right-click.

  • IE Tab V2
    Just like the classic IE Tab above. It updated with many new features. And it supports Firefox 4.

  • FoxyProxy Standard

    "FoxyProxy is an advanced proxy management tool that completely replaces Firefox's limited proxying capabilities. It offers more features than SwitchProxy, ProxyButton, QuickProxy, xyzproxy, ProxyTex, TorButton, etc."--by Eric H. Jung.

    It will help developer to switch an internet connection across one or more proxy servers based on URL patterns with more than 34 language supported. 

    It's useful. However, the update version is not as good as the old one.

  • Image ZoomAdds zoom and rotation functionality for images.Easily zoom in, zoom out, fit image to screen or set custom zoom on individual images within a web page. All this can be done by using the context menu or a combination of mouse buttons and scroll wheel. Handy to see the finer details of smaller pics or to make very large pics fit within your screen.Waiting for it upgrades for Thunderbird 6.
