    I thought we could get a thread going to list all the extensions/add-ons that are 3.0 compatible.

    I can add one off the top of my head

    awesome, I'm glad this is picking up steam. I didn't think Tab Mix plus was updated though.

    there is a beta/experimental version of TabMix that works with Firefox 3. I have had some compatability problems with TabMix Plus and HeaderSpy (which also works with Firefox 3). Basically, when both are enabled, Ctrl-F4 will close 2 tabs at a time. If I disable either one, it works fine.

    So, for the time being, HeaderSpy is disabled as TabMix Plus offers much more usable functionality.

    Sorry..should have mentioned that. I can't live without Tab Mix Plus so I'm always jumping on whatever new build they put out!

    If you have the older version of Web Developer (1.1.4) on the Beta 5 of FF it will not update to version 1.1.6 that works with RC1. It says that the plug-in doesn't support secure updates. So you have to go to the home page for the plug-in and download/install that way. Then it's all happy.

    PDF Download version 1.0.1.1 works with RC1
    Foxy Tunes version 3 Beta works with RC1 (and the different skins for it), but you have to do the same type of install as "Web Developer".

    Link please. I use to use a download manager plugin (Download Manager Tweak 0.7.2) that worked great with FF but it stopped getting updated and that was that. Need new one.

    a bad idea (but if your desparate to get older plugins working) probably at the expense of problems...

    i'd rather live without the addon if its not compatible... but at least the option is there for those who like to tweak ;)

    It's a whole program, but the plugin itself works great. Recommended 100%!

    you can also install the addon NIghtly Tester Tools to override compatibility. The cool thing I found was some addons work perfectly fine with it overridden but some doing.

    Recently found one called Text Link that lets you double click links that do not have a hyperlink attached to them and automatically take you to that site in a new tab.
