    Last time I recommended http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=406976 Speed Dial.

    Today, a new extension: FireGestures. Im sure many users already know MouseGestures extension, It allows you to click and drag your mice to draw in the browser window to operate the browser, backward, forward. new window/tab, reload, home, bookmark, next tab, close window etc, etc. unfortunately, it is only available for firefox 2.0.x.

    FireGestures (ver 1.1) is the now compatible with firefox 2-3.0beta5 and latest nightly "3.0pre"

    to install: http://www.xuldev.org/firegestures/develop.php


    You can also customize the gestures as you wish.
    One cool feature of this is that you can enable (which is enable by default) the mice trail, and know exactly what gesture you just did. lol

    If you are using Firefox b3 or recent nightly build, the addon searching function is builtin to your addon manager, you can search for Firegestures through there.

    version 1.1 is almost ready. You can goto author's homepage http://www.xuldev.org/firegestures/develop.php and install it

    most significant fix is that it will NOT break inline spellchecking in Lin/OSX anymore

    Great extension, strongly suggest mice ppl try out.

    What I miss most about this add-on is the "open all links in new tabs" feature from the All-in-one-Gesture
