I would like to thank barryl666 from StumbleUpon for recommending I try these Firefox add-ons. After taking a careful look, I concluded they can help me a lot in improving my overall experience with Firefox. The nice thing is…the same applies to you if you use them So take a look:
MOST USEFUL: AutoPager – Scroll Down effortlessly
If you search on Google and want ‘page 2’ to load automatically then AutoPager can help you in that. This applies also to YouTube (video results and comments), Yahoo, Bing, Amazon and many other popular sites.

USEFUL: FoxTab – Alt + Tab for Firefox
On the above picture you can see one of the nicest features of FoxTab. You press CTRL + TAB and you’ll get a window like the one above, it’s similar like pressing ALT + TAB on Windows.
