According to Google, Blogger Web Comments for Firefox is an extension that helps bloggers see what other bloggers are saying about the page they are viewing. Apparently, it's also possible to make your own blog post about it, without leaving the page you're on.

There's also a safebrowsing extension for firefox to help identify phishing or spoofing.

Out of curiosity
I searched G for the same option on IE
It does not seem to exist
of Course G and IE does not have the same level of relationship but it would be a great option wouldn't it.

Problems:
1) we need to get FF 1.5
Ok done.
2) Edit options to allow WWW.google.com to perform install
3) Done in all possible ways

Then still cannot install the Anti forgery

FF states that if at that point one still can't install then email them

Does anyone has a fix?

Just a guess: Did you use Firefox previous to 1.5?

If so, it's possible that you might have set your pre-1.5 "xpinstall.enabled" option to false, blocking software installation. This option is no longer exposed in the Firefox Options GUI, so you may need to dig a bit deeper into your Firefox configuration.

Browse to the URL "about:config" and look at your xpinstall.enabled option setting. Double-clicking the option will toggle it from false to true and back.

Search Status is a great firefox extension.

Page Rank, Alexa, and a whole bunch of other stuff all in one.

Too much spam. I don't know why non-link specific URLs are showing up. It doesn't handle dynamic URL accurately. Needs option to disable search on specific domains like Google. Otherwise, its really noisy.
