Hi Djyano,

You've compiled a great list of handy Firefox add-ons. I didn't know most of them! I'd like to mention a Firefox plugin that I believe everyone should have. It's called Morning Coffee.

Morning Coffee is an add-on that allows you to open a group of multiple tabs with a click of a button. This add-on should get a mention in Episode 2# ;) .
