    Why would you remove the search bar? Instant wiki access is so awesome.

    :wi <search term>
    :g <search term>

    I'm going to be whoring out VIMPERATOR for the remainder of the thread. Start loving it, baby.

    :g? I just have anything not a URL or a keyword search entered into the address bar take me to a google search page.
    In about about:config, keyword.URL = http://www.google.com/search?ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=com.ubuntu:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&q=

    Sure, you can't use any searches that start with a word directly followed by a colon, but other than that, it's extremely convenient.

    SpiderZilla (downloads full webpages)
    Stealther (good, especially for Firefox Portable)

    I used to like chroma tab, but it only works when I hover the mouse over tabs, which is irritating and not that great. Kind of lags the GUI.

    Anyone know if there's a way to turn off image zooming? That's gotta be the most retarded thing, and it doesn't even use a quality scaling algorithm. When I look at an image, I want to see the image, not some shitty nearest-neighbor shrunk version.

    about:config -> filter -> browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing -> change to false

    Whoever mentioned "All in One Sidebar" the Opera sidebar thingie for Firefox. :^:

    I'd also recommend "Fancy Numbered Tabs". It replaces the "Close" button with a number that corresponds to the Alt+Number that a keyboard press would open the tab.
