Didn't want to hijack the thread talking about 1.5.0.1 being released so I thought I'd start a new one.

What's your favorite FireFox extensions? I don't have a single one running but was wondering what y'all like and why.

I really like one called "Web Developer" that lets you turn on and off practically anything in a website (HTML/CSS/XML, etc.)

Also amusing is the Abe Vigoda Status plugin that lets you know whether Abe is alive, dead or not alive.

It put a little "X" on the right corner of each tab. Click the X and the tab closes. Very handy, expecially using a one-button trackpad on a Mac.

There used to be one where if you double-clicked the tab, it would close, but that stopped working several revisions ago, and I've never been able to find the update.

Use the middle mouse button; if you middle mouse in the tab area (not a tab), it opens a new one; if you middle mouse on a tab, it closes it.
