The best of Firefox Tricks, Extensions and Websites

Scott Kingery has collected some of the best Firefox Tips and Tricks - The website can be subscribed as an RSS Feed.

I came across a useful Firefox extension similar to AI Roboform called Scribe - It lets you save the field of your form. So if you are on-line and filling out a blog post or a coment to someone elses post you can hit crtl+s and save your comment locally. If something should happen you can do a "File - Open Entry.." and open you saved file right into your form. Handy for Gmail and other web based email programs.
