Firefox Must Have Extentions Update

My list of Must Have Firefox Extentions has been updated to include Clippings, ErrorZilla, ImgLikeOpera, NoScript, and VideoDownloader.

Clippings saves and manages frequently-entered text for pasting later. Text can be pasted from Clippings into forms and input fields without the hassle of retyping or repetitive copying and pasting. Perfect for pasting in text you always need to retype in forms, web mail (gmail!), blog entries, wiki editing and forum posts.

ErrorZilla implements a useful error page when a website cannot be reached. Will add "Try Again," "Google Cache," "Coralize," "Wayback," "Ping," "Trace," and "Whois" buttons, along with the Firefox logo to the error page when a website isn't found or a web server is down.

ImgLikeOpera loads only the images that you want. Adds the same functionality as in Opera.

NoScript allows JavaScript, Java and other executable content to run only from trusted domains of your choice, e.g. your home-banking web site. Such a preemptive approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even unknown!) with no loss of functionality.

VideoDownloader adds a small icon on the status bar at the bottom of your firefox window, and a toolbar button. Just click that and download the video you are watching from Youtube, Google, Metacafe, iFilm, Dailymotion... and 60+ other video sites. Also works all embedded objects on a webpage (movies, mp3s, flash, quicktime, etc.)
