Best Firefox Extensions - All Time Useful

Firefox extensions are small add-ons that add new functionality to Mozilla applications. They can add anything from a toolbar button to a completely new feature. They allow the application to be customized to fit the personal needs of each user if they need additional features, while minimizing the size of the application itself. One of the great perks of Firefox is that there are tons of extensions that enhance the functionality of the browser. With over 1500 extensions in existence, there are many that can be used to improve your productivity.

Here are my picks for the Useful and Best Firefox Extensions:

Scrapbook is extremely useful for researchers and students. Scrapbook saves blurbs from Web pages to your hard drive along with the URL of the originating Web site. It allows you to organize and categorize your blurbs in a format similar to your bookmarks so that when it comes to creating a bibliography or works cited, you won’t waste any time.
Autofill Forms enables you to fill out web forms with one click or a keyboard shortcut.
The Text Link extension enables URLs that are not linked on web pages to be easily launched via a double click. Settings are also provided that enable URLs to be executed with different key and/or mouse combinations.
Select text on any web page and it will be automatically copied to the clipboard. It works in much the same way as does Trillian or mIrc. Paste on middle click into textboxes, the url bar, and the search bar. 
AutoPager automatically loads next pages when you reach the end of a page. It works on a ton of sites,Google,Yahoo..
Screengrab! saves web pages as images... It will capture what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, a particular frame... basically it saves web pages as images - either to a file, or to the clipboard.
GMarks helps you sync & manage your bookmarks with Google Bookmarks. GMarks allows for easy migration to and from Google Bookmarks. You can import your Firefox bookmarks to Google or export your Google Bookmarks to a bookmarks.htm file. GMarks is completely separate from your Firefox bookmarks and does not remove or hide them. You can access your bookmarks anywhere.
