    I was wondering: is there an add-on for FF that saves all your add-ons like the bookmarks with Foxmarks, so you can sync the add-ons with fi a laptop or so that you can retrieve them when you reinstall FF?

    No one said FlashBlock yet. It's wonderful!

    I hate the proliferation of little flash ads polluting many web pages, but FlashBlock doesn't load a flash until you click on it. Nice.
