Dear CNET members,
A while back, the CNET Download.com team asked our members what some of your favorite Firefox extensions are, and you responded heartily with excellent choices that allowed us to narrow down all of your suggestions to a list of 10. But if you missed that boat, no worries--we've created a new discussion just for you to tell us, and to tell all, what some of your favorites are. As it stands today, there are hundreds and hundreds of extensions to choose from, and who knows what's hot and what's not? So if you're a Firefox user and you've added one or many Firefox plug-ins to make your browsing experience king, help out your community by telling us what your favorite Firefox extension is and why it goes down in your books as your favorite. I'm sure many of us, including me, are always looking for undiscovered extensions to try out. In addition to submitting your favorites, vote on other members' submissions as well so that we can get an overall picture of what are truly members' favorites and maybe even the best plug-ins available out there!
This week's hot topic:

IE Tab--best of both worlds
While this is a simple extension, CNET member simdan explains that this plug-in allows you open Web pages displayed in the format of Internet Explorer--inside the Firefox browser--which makes it great for checking browser compatibility and working with sites that perform only for IE.

Why aren't your old photos digitized yet?
Organizing all those boxes, bags, drawers, albums, and packets of old photos can be daunting enough to make anyone procrastinate for decades. Does the prospect of scanning them make you want to put it off another century? Or are you one of the diligent few?
The campaign for straightforward billing
Verizon Online's billing patterns are out of whack. We know DSL providers like to tack on surcharges, but this summer, some DSL bills rose by $15 in June, then decreased $14 the next month.
